The current solutions used for the assistance in their navigation are not useful & effective, as most of them are hand-held, single sensor mount, difficult to hold devices, relying on vibrational & haptic feedback for notifying the user about any obstacle in their path.
Therefore, resulting in a lot of functional disadvantages of current solutions, for example- line of sight issues with hand held devices (stick needed to be kept straight at all times), manual alignment and lack of an intuitive feedback.
Outdoor navigation is becoming a harder task for the blind and visually impaired people in the increasingly complex urban world. The technology and solutions available for navigation of the blind is not sufficiently accessible and some devices rely heavily on infrastructural requirements. There’s a lack of a practical and useful Assistive Navigation Tech for the Blind people whose population is expected to reach 32M in India alone and 76M in the world and we are well aware of the regular issues and inconveniences they face apart from their condition, due to the lack of proper support system for them especially in India.
For their integration and assimilation in society.
For a more accesible world.
The revolution is here!
