App helps the blind to interact with environment
December 8, 2016
A group of developers in Europe have created an app to help the visually impaired people interact with the environment.
The app named Cedalion has customised sounds and a visual display that gives warning areas with options for colour-blind individuals.
The developers suggest using a vest to hold the device straight up to the ground at chest level with headphones.
The app has hardware system, two camera lenses, supporting software, among others.
It has the ability to find distances between devices and objects in the environment in real time as the device moves.
