Smart cane
Smart cane

The rationale of Smart cane is like a flying bat. It sends
multi-ultrasonic by the device in the head of the gripe. And then people will receiver feedback signal. When there are obstacles in front of people, even if small as tree branches, the feedback signal will recognize. The device records hundreds of obstacles information (such as
Stop car, goods in the street …etc) When the feedback signal matches, smart cane will prompt people by earphone. It solves the problem which traditional blind guide stick can’t detect the obstacles in a 3D space. And make a full use of existing techniques at a relatively low cost to figure out the trouble.
