Eco-responsible, without any electrical connection, The Rudder revolutionizes pedestrian orientation and their situation awareness of their surroundings.

Very easy to deploy : indoors and outdoors. For the first time, a sought- destination is physically and visually always in front of the user. The itinerary then becomes easy to memorize thanks to an illustration and a personalized, rewarding and interchangeable cartographic representation. Are you eye focus on an energy-guzzling smartphone to guide you? The Rudder directs and allows you to fully appreciate and understand your surroundings! The users stay fully aware of their surroundings. By including The Rudder in the city’s strategies and policies in favor of walking, it successfully complements other solutions at the service of pedestrians and the viability of public and private spaces.
