White Key / Smart Key for Blind

White Key
White Key

People expect and imagine a big change of lifestyle in future mobile environment. Driverless cars provide new lifestyles in vehicles such as eating, working and even sleeping. But we focused on another issue. The major obstacle for a blind person to go outside is using public transportation. It is hard for the blind to know the arrival of the vehicle. The white key is designed to intuitively navigate the blind person to where the car is parked. The blind can find the right direction through 3-way touch vibration feedback system. We expect a better future that blind can own a personal transportation someday.
