WeWALK
 
WeWALK is a revolutionary smart cane developed for the visually impaired. WeWALK attaches to the traditional white cane, transforming it into an innovative smart cane. This technology increases visually impaired people's independence and promotes full participation in society via three of its features.
 
- Obstacle Detection:  WeWALK detects obstacles above chest level with an ultrasonic sensor and vibrates when these objects are near.
 
- Phone Pairing: When paired with the WeWALK mobile application via Bluetooth, the user can use apps with WeWALK's touchpad, without holding his or her phone. For example, the user can get navigation on the WeWALK device.
 
- 3rd Party Integrations: WeWALK is integrated with "Google Maps" and "Voice Assistant". In the future, WeWALK will also be integrated with Uber and many other apps. These new integration features are installed through periodic software updates.
