The problem

Walking independently as blind or visually impaired person involves a lot of challenges. Avoiding obstacles undetected by white cane, finding crosswalk is hard and even a simple walk in a park can feel stressful. It drastically reduces their independence.

1. Risky obstacles

Walking with a white cane exposes users to collisions with their environment

2. Stressful situations

It remains very hard to find crosswalks or walk in a crowded place

3. Lack of independence

Discovering new environments often requires external help, or long training

5. Do I still have to use my white cane?

Your white cane provides detailed tactile information on the type of floor or very small changes of levels for example. Use biped as a complement to your white cane.

6. Can I use any headphone for the audio feedback?

You can either use wired headphones, or Bluetooth ones. We however recommend that you use bone conduction headphones to have the best experience, as it does not block the rest of the sounds.
