心杖 / Heart Walking Guide Crutch


The guide crutch uses cloud technology in order
to integrate the information of the whereabouts
of blind people.

It can locate the places a person travels to
throughout the day or the places they often go.

Public transportation timetables are also
provided in this device and it is able to locate
the stops where blind people may be so
that they can be helped onto the bus.

The guide crutch is also able to instantly link with all the
public transportation systems to alert drivers
that there may be blind people at the next stop.

This device also offers an alert system that vibrates
when it senses danger around the blind person.
