Navigation shoes / Shoes

Navigation shoes
Navigation shoes

Blind people have lost their sense of direction because they have lost their vision. This is a wearable navigation device provided by a blind person. The inspiration comes from the blind paths in the city. In the city, although blind paths are common, they are not built humanely enough leading to many problems. I found that when walking, a change in the center of gravity causes a person to walk in the direction of the center of gravity. The navigation shoe will use the slope of the shoe to change the slope of the shoe when it is about to turn, so that the center of gravity will be shifted and the user will know the location information.
