AR-Cane / Cane


Since the elderly population is rising sharply, many people are suffering from Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. As a result, recently we often see news about missing elderly people.
The AR-CANE is a smart cane which enables an elderly person to set navigation by using an augmented reality system. It shows elements augmented in a real-world environment by using computer-generated graphics and sound. Just use voice control or touch the screen and the AR-CANE will let you know the correct direction.
In the app, you can find additional features, options, and help in the menu. It can also share information like their location for family members.
