About the Work

For blind and visually impaired people, it’s challenging to enter unfamiliar environments. Objection detection apps can identify objects but fail when it comes to interacting with them in a meaningful way. Dot Go is the first object interaction app, which means that it not only detects objects in the environment but also connects them to actions. These actions could be internal actions like sounds and vibration, external actions in other apps, websites, and even smart home devices. For example: A bus stop sign could trigger open the public transportation app to buy the right ticket. Following the simple material conditional logic used in programming — “if x then y” — Dot Go allows users to create on a simple principle: Any object can be connected to any action. Dot Go combines open-source computer vision models with simple automation (system shortcuts and deeplinks). While allowing people to assign actions to objects, the app acts as an accessibility toolkit. Since there are many levels to visual impairment, the app was designed with options to customize as per one’s needs; be it low-vision, light sensitivity, or color-blindness. Instead of fixed use cases, anyone can create presets for specific objects, locations, and needs. Nobody has to start from scratch, as they can download existing presets from a growing library curated by users, institutions, and brands. Dot Go empowers the visually impaired community to engage with their environment and experience it in their own way. After a promising launch of the first beta version of Dot in 2021, Dot Go received funding from the Inter-Developmental American Bank (IDB) and Born2Global as a part of the LAC Deep Tech Exchange Program, to increase app functionality. As a result, a long-term partnership with Wheel The World was established to make tourism in Latin America accessible. Following months of development and accessibility audits, the public version of Dot Go was launched in early 2022. Available for free download from the App Store, Dot Go is being used daily by thousands of visually impaired users, businesses, brands, and organizations.
