About Us

illumie's vision is helping blind and visually impaired feel more secure when they navigate the world, enabling meaningful exploration.

We started illumie during Sopra Steria Innovation Awards, a global competition for 40.000 employees in which we became one of the winners in 2020. This allowed us to continue working on illumie as an internal project in Sopra Steria.

Moving forward, we continue to pursue our vision to bring about real change for people in their everyday lives. illumie works in close collaboration with potential users and the Norwegian Association for the Blind to find solutions for those with vision loss.
