PAVIP is a platform to increase autonomy and mobility of the visually impaired. It is more than a group of products. It is an end-to-end approach to reduce obstacles that visually impaired people are faced with every day. And it is a way to increase accessibility of various aspects in daily life. Included in PAVIP is the development of end user products, the infrastructure they need to interact with, as well as training and assistance to the end users. PAVIP is an acronym for „Personal Assistant for Visually Impaired People“.
PAVIP is carried by the Swiss Federation of the Blind and Visually Impaired (SFB), Swiss National Association of and for the Blind (SNAB), Swiss Library for the Blind (SBS), Federal Office of Transport (FOT), Public Transportation Authorities of the City of St. Gallen (VBSG) and the Engineering Office Bones Inc.
