OverviewSuggest Edit

Aira is focused on developing transformative remote assistive technology and services that bring greater mobility, independence and self-confidence to blind and visually impaired individuals by connecting them, in an Uber-style, to a network of certified Agents. The Company's high-tech approach uses a real-time interactive cloud-based dashboard, built to create for the blind an augmented reality context with live data streams from cameras, GPS, and other sensor systems from wearable platforms such as Google Glass and Pivothead. This allows Aira's remote Agents to render live personalized assistance to users in a myriad of daily activities – ranging from navigating busy city streets and catching a bus, to ordering meals from menus at restaurants and literally traveling the globe.
