Oko leverages AI to interpret real-time visual information from your environment. We are creating a seamless integration with GPS, creating the most accurate pedestrian navigation app available.
AI-powered visual assistance when you need it. 
Currently oko helps you identify pedestrian signals, and in the future, it will also assist in identifying things like crosswalks and bus stops - all through our intuitive, AI-powered oko app. Simply raise the phone and, by using your camera, oko will assist you along your route. 
A mockup displays three iPhones, each showcasing a different feature of the Oko app. On the left, an iPhone demonstrates the ability to detect a stop sign and crosswalk. In the middle, another iPhone displays the capability to identify a bus, specifying its line and destination, in this case, bus B61 heading towards Park Slope. The iPhone on the right illustrates the app's ability to recognize bus stops, showcasing a bus stop sign in Manhattan.
An portrait image of Jeffrey, a raving user of oko.

”In 2011 I was walking in Orlando and was hit by an SUV, which resulted in a herniated disc. This still effects me everyday. Since that day I was always paranoid crossing the streets. Thanks to oko I gained a much higher confidence level that I haven’t felt in years.

This is an absolute game changer for our safety”
