HODOHKUN Guideway is a soft rubber mat used to guide visually impaired people through an interior space. They can recognize the route by feeling the difference between the surface of the mat and the surrounding floor using their foot or cane. Also, since the surface is flat and smooth, wheelchair and stroller users, people who have difficulty walking, the elderly and others can safely pass over it. The color of the mat can be modified to match the surrounding environment for people with low vision.
