By recognizing amplitude feedback of different frequencies and voice prompts, "OMO" provides guidance for the visually impaired through ultrasonic ranging technology. The visually impaired record the bad experiences encountered during a trip through the "OMO" and upload this feedback. These data form a visual map of the city through IoT technology. After the city managers collect this feedback, they will add or improve the accessibility facilities over time to create a better travel environment for the visually impaired.

This is a great design idea to help ensure that travel in the city is accessible to the blind and visually impaired.
