Future Mobility

Way-finding is a fundamental part of the lives of billions. From cyclists to visually impaired people, there can be a better way of navigating urban environments without heavily relying on visual directions - AR Sound. This is why waveOut provides an intuitive, seamless and hands-free audio navigation. 3D sound points are placed along the users' routes. The sounds feel anchored in the "real world" and the users simply need to follow them one after the other to get to their destination.
WaveOut app aims to develop and deploy the best audio way-finding experience. This lays the foundations for a plug-and-play solution with a B2B licensing model for the customers that look to add an audio AR layer to their existing navigation experience. With the B2B navigation app market waveOut addresses a 2.6B Euro serviceable available market.
On a mission to redefine the AR audio experience, waveOut is looking to raise to €1M by Q1 2023.
