Smart Cane Helps Visually Impaired “See” Obstacles

 

What is WeWALK? 

WeWALK is a revolutionary smart cane developed for the visually impaired. 

WeWALK attaches to the traditional white cane, transforming it into an innovative smart cane. This technology increases visually impaired people’s independence and promotes full-participation in society via three of its features. 

  1. Detects Obstacles: WeWALK detects obstacles above chest level with an ultrasonic sensor and vibrates when these objects are near. 
  2. Paired with Phone: When paired with the WeWALK mobile application via Bluetooth, the user can use applications with WeWALK’s touchpad, without holding his or her phone. For example, the user can get navigation on the WeWALK device. 
  3. Evolves with Integrations: WeWALK is integrated with “Google Maps” and “Voice Assistant”. In the future, WeWALK will be integrated with Uber and Lyft. These new integration features are installed through periodic software updates. 

Technical Characteristics

 WeWALK incorporates many cutting-edge technologies including a gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, directional vibration motors, microprocessor, touchpad, microphone, speaker and Bluetooth Low Energy module. 

WeWALK synthesizes these technologies so that the user can easily access these features on one device. Incorporated in its elegant design is a rechargeable battery.
