Skipfish / Aids for the blind people

Skipfish
Blinds are helpless in unknown environments and facing potential dangers when they walking on the street. Although there are guiding bricks arranged, occupation and inadequate placement often seen. Based on these issues, we have one proposal to improve guiding brick equipments: combining with ultrasound, pressure detector and RFID chip. They can detect and prevent the occupation of guiding bricks on blind’s way. New guiding brick can inform blind people of information points that provide detail of locations and directions by voice device. Blind people will realize the situation of environment and walk safely by voice information.
