Philosophy

A new way of moving in our cities significantly improving the safety and autonomy for the visually impaired.

Obstacle detection

A sophisticated system of sensors is used to detect, in a timely manner, any obstacles in the path.

Safety in the walk

The disabled person can move with more autonomy and safety.

Voice Interaction

Any obstacles will be communicated through vibration or in the native language for more interaction.

Developments

The device in question is intended to provide valuable assistance to people who are blind or visually impaired by providing sensory information about obstacles on their way, both indoors and outdoors. The stick is equipped with electronics that can alert you if you are facing obstacles such as to create a danger of falling as the presence of variations in the level of the floor, either in the fall or rise in that obstacles to right or left in the direction of his journey. The system provides real time information of sensory (vibrating) or kind voice on the nature of the obstacles you may encounter. The stick is equipped with dual front wheel can give you more information on sensory terrain roughness. The whole is powered by batteries that provide a range of about five hours of continuous use.

The system can be customized according to customer needs, being able to set the levels and the response thresholds of sensors, such as the minimum distance of obstacle detection and of changes in the level of the floor. All with an accuracy of about 1cm in both the horizontal and vertical.

The system, made of aluminum alloy, combining lightness and practicality in use to a considerable strength. The system is not intended to replace the stick classic blind or visually impaired but integrate it by providing additional information to the customer. The practice of use can then make the user to opt for the use of the system in alternative to the traditional white cane.
