There are about 50 million visually impaired people worldwide, blind people face a huge problem when walking outdoors.
How do visually impaired people cross the road like ordinary people?
We think of blind roads as an important reliance for the visually impaired. When blind people walk to the crosswalk, they still don't know the situation of the road signal lights. We rethink the blind sidewalk on the sidewalk so that the visually impaired can be silently aware of the traffic situation. We added a vibration function to the round contact blind sidewalk brick representing the stop signal.
