Cane, SmartCane (Folded)
SmartCane was designed to address the needs of people in the developing world with vision loss. A significant feature is that it can detect obstructions between a person’s knee and chest up to three meters away. Sensors emit and receive ultrasonic waves that trigger haptic vibrations when a physical hazard is detected, using various patterns to differentiate obstacles and distances.
