Lighthouse Tech created the next generation wearable mobility device for blind and visually impaired people.
For blind and visually impaired people, travelling outside their homes for work, study, socialising, and daily living is difficult. Physical dangers in the environment inhibit independent travel, with a strong negative impact on the quality of life. The white cane is useless in detecting objects above the waist.
The technology implemented by Lighthouse detects any objects located above the waist by continuously scanning the surroundings. The miniaturised sensor embedded in fashion and stylish glasses, with a unique modular and patented click-in system alerts the user of any danger by means of a soft ergonomic vibration.
