The real challenge

An illustration of a lady, walking in the street, with a white cane and a STOP sign in front, with a risk of collision.

270 million visually impaired people worldwide use sounds to move. Most obstacles like electric vehicles, bikes, or pedestrians are silent, yet dangerous.

To prevent collisions and guide you, companies developed smart canes to avoid obstacles, smart glasses to describe the scene, smart wristbands to get GPS instructions...

Do you know what’s smart? A device that does it all.

Meet biped

Empowering you to move stress-free.

The biped device, seen as folded. The straps fold away easily, as the structure is bendable. The full device can then be stored in a backpack.
biped device picture, seen from the front view. The device is worn on the shoulders, around the neck. On the left side of the chest, the camera module films the environment. On the right side of the chest, there is a small computer. All of that is hidden behind nice protection cases that are black and discrete. A battery sits behind the neck. The whole device is rather discrete. We've tested it extensively by wearing it in the metro at peak hours and observe the way people looks at it. Most people believe that it is the straps of a backpack.

biped is a smart and discrete harness, worn on the shoulders, with wide-angle cameras working like a pedestrian-level self-driving car.

biped generates intuitive 3D sounds to warn you about the position of important obstacles, vehicles, pedestrians or urban elements based on risk of collision. It also provides GPS instructions. Delivered with bone conduction headphones to leave your ears free. Wondering what is sounds like?

Community feedback

biped was co-developed with over 100 beta-testers from scratch. We challenged everything. The shape of the device, weight, the way to plug the battery, the categories of objects to detect, the sounds. Everything.
