In addition to using accessories, most visually impaired people also need timely assistance from the public when they go out. The rapid technological developments in autonomous navigation has seen the maturation in the application of drones. Guidrone hopes to use the advantages of drones to help visually impaired people move around smoothly. Guidrone is like a tour guide taking the visually impaired where they want to go.

A drone as a leading hand with autonomous navigation is an innovative approach to help visually impaired people become more independent. The concept is ergonomic and has a high practical benefit for the target group.
