“VISION+” is an advanced white cane with navigation functions. It is a humanistic approach to help blind people for a better mobility in a predefined infrastructure. The user can search for and landmark desired addresses and get navigation help by receiving audio and tactile information at critical locations, e.g. bus stops and routes, crosswalks, road works, according to his/her preferences. Improved mobility, safety and independency of the blind will help them to achieve better social skills. As a result this device will support blind people to develop their mobility and help them to benefit from opportunities of the society equally.
