FIWARE Challenger. Winner! Our hard work and ingenuity has paid off.
After receiving the official announcement for the participation at Mobile World Congress 2018, we are delighted to add another award to our roster of successes for our company mission– to continue being a company that is dedicated to providing high-quality services to the blind and vision-impaired community.
Project Ray is one of the winners of the FIWARE CHALLENGE 2017.
FIWARE CHALLENGE 2017 was an ambitious competition to replicate top smart solutions based in US cities. Project Ray has been marked as a smart solution for helping the people who have vision issues, with specially designed phones operated by touch, voice recognition, sound and haptic interactions. The competition has recognized our uniqueness and the potential of our solution, and made us one of two winners of the FIWARE Challenge that were announced during the FIWARE summit. Together with Wisetown, we will obtain financial support of 25,000€. Project Ray plans to use these funds to help achieve our goals of enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty. As a FIWARE winner, we will be participating in the 2018 kick-off conference of GCTC (February 6-8 ) in Washington, DC.
Project Ray received this prestigious prize by building an effective team. We proposed a development plan covering all of the important information regarding the technical know-how, the administrative drive and the resources to design, implement, field test and deploy an application that fulfills the objectives of this challenge. We are happy that we met the objectives and succeeded to be part of GCTC 2018.
Thank you FIWARE CHALLENGE!
