Kate, Thank you! We are excited for this next stage! I would say that our idea is considered Most Viable. The incentives and funding would help us to refine our user interface/user experience. It will help us to further develop our navigation tool to include some of the added features that users have expressed interest in. The AARP mentorship will help us to connect with many older adults to increase usage and the potential of making a large impact. The research panel and pilot opportunity will help us to conduct a study and test the navigation tool to receive important information about usability. The next steps for us are to improve the user interface and continually test it with users. Development is an ongoing process that involves feedback from users and software developers to make the improvements. The incentives as part of this challenge would be invaluable in advancing our pedestrian navigation tool. The goal after this challenge is to launch in one city and have the foundation to launch in others.

Angela and Kate, Thank you for the recommendation. Valentina, I think it would be great to discuss further. Would you be interested in setting up a video chat or phone call? Please email me on the side and we can arrange. Thanks!

Thank you for your comments. Please do continue to follow us. Our goal is to one day be global and exist in places like South Africa. And, we will likely need your help to do that! We are still developing some of our tools so that we can scale, but we are not too far away. I think issues with facilities and other services tie closely together with what we are working on.
