The blinds’bicycles / Blind Sporting Goods Design

The blinds’bicycles

An navigation sensor system for the blinds’bicycles

This design is a bicycling safety protection for the blind. It helps to release pressure and increase exercise amounts of the blind to further increase their confidence. Technologies such as RFID, voice system, GNSS, and ultrasonic collision avoidance were used to develop this design, which is a sensory device installed on a bicycle based on mind map settings of the blind and safe distances to obstructs. The short-term goal is to help blind student to practice. In the future it is hoped that bikeways can be added inside community parks for the blind to enjoy the fun of riding the wind.
