Braille Guider / Insole

Braille Guider

In addition to the fact that the existing blind guide bricks are not widely installed, there are many damages and installations in incorrect positions that cause inconvenience and even danger to the visually impaired when walking. Wheelchair groups will also be difficult to move due to blind guide bricks, which creates additional obstacles.

In addition to using insoles instead of laying guide bricks to solve the existing installation problems, the visually impaired can judge walking and stopping through the changing graphics of the insoles, and can also determine the walking direction on the pre-set map path.
