Speaker: John Chan, Maxpus

Join the US-Asia Technology Management Center for the fourth session in our 2021 Autumn Seminar Series, Mobility: Asia Moves Forward in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

The use of technology to address and offer solutions to commonplace challenges is all around us.  Join us to hear the story of Mapxus, a company employing its technology to solve access and navigation issues for the visually impaired.  This conversation will range from the applications of this tech within the broader market and Mapxus’ business model to how the company fits in with other aspects of smart city digital infrastructure.

Mapxus is an all-rounded PropTech solutions partner in indoor mapping applications. We put people first, and we are dedicated to empowering people, businesses, and cities through creating a barrier-free and inclusive urban environment.

Mapxus helps to fulfill smart mobility through closing the gap between digital maps and indoor environments, to revolutionize our interactions with the physical space, as well as to deliver a comfortable, intuitive, and seamless indoor-outdoor experience for everyone.
