GUIDE SHOES / lifestyle


Most of the visually challenged have to rely on crutches and guide dogs to help them on the road. Our product combines the functions of shoes and parking sensors in a whole new concept, integrating part of the theory in the parking sensor with the terrain sensor onto the shoes. It can detect the terrain within the radius of 10 meters from the shoes, replacing human vision with audio aids to remind the visually challenged of the distance of dangerous situations ahead, so that they can “hear” the road safer and easier when walking.
