“The system helps users navigate by telling where to turn right, turn left, keep going or move backwards. The stick also alerts you if you are facing obstacles or reaching your destination, for example, bus stops and other objects. We came up with the idea to make it by attaching a receiver to a walking stick. This is a prototype. The production-ready design will be lightweight. Besides that, the tip of the device detects nearby obstacles and vibrates to inform the user avoid them,” the news agency quoted the Kazakh scientist.
