Aira.IO is an innovative technology-enabled service that is designed to help blind and low-vision users gain greater independence in a wide range of daily activities. In doing so, Aira provides live assistance via a network of certified Agents, plus family, friends, and volunteers. Agents use a real-time interactive cloud-based ¨Mission control¨ dashboard purposely built to communicate with users through the processing of live data streams from cameras, GPS, and other sensor systems from wearable platforms such as Google Glass and Vuzix. Founded in 2014, Aira began as an idea between Suman Kanuganti and Yuja Chang, both graduates of UC San Diego. Aira is today one of the fastest rising companies in assistive technology for the visually impaired
