You’re attending your first conference at the 1.2 million-square-foot, 16-acre Music City Center. You’ve got to walk from a meeting room on the first floor to the Grand Ballroom on the fourth in 10 minutes. And you’ve just had five cups of coffee.

Vanderbilt University’s Jules White has got you covered.

His new wayfinder app for iPhone and Android will provide photo-based, step-by-step directions for the entire route, a one-click search for the closest restroom, and an exit guide so users can leave for downtown nightlife later on.
