Haptic Guide / Device for visually impaired

Haptic Guide
Haptic Guide

People who are blind rely on their white walking canes. But the cane only helps them find their way by feeling limited areas. The Haptic Guide, using specific sensor, distinguishes the surroundings and provides the visually impaired with a safe trip. Without having to fumble through the areas with the cane, Haptic Guide’s sensor calculates the surroundings and sends similar pressure on its user’s hands. With the Haptic Guide, People with visual impairment could understand their surroundings like they are actually going through the place on their hands.
