"Bright Shoes" connects the location information of the blind to the Internet of Things. The "networked" city system can analyze the data of the blind and the surrounding environment to prolong the transit time of the green light moderately. It can also feedback on the dynamic position of the blind to the nearby smart car. The panoramic camera of the tongue can detect the surrounding environment and link it with the intelligent system of the sole, which can guide the blind to walk safely.
