Sonroundings / Sensory additional device


Our human visual perception is very limited, and can only cover about 180 degrees of space in front of us, which causes the lack of sense of space behind us, and further leads to safety accidents such as rear-end collisions.
Sonroundings uses sensory addition to enhance the sense of space behind humans. Specifically, it converts the actively captured rear environmental information into 3D surround sound audio. People can actively perceive the rear space by understanding the sound, creating a "new sense" for riders, enhancing the human sense of rear space, and taking the initiative of safety in our own hands.
