WeWALK Smart Cane

Category: 

Description of App: 

WeWALK is developing assistive technologies including the world’s smartest cane for visually impaired and it’s awarded by Edison Award and TIME Magazine.

This technology increases visually impaired people’s independence and promotes equal and full- participation in society with its features like navigation through Google Maps, Alexa Voice Assistant service, public transportation integrations, and obstacle detection.

You can use WeWALK's iOS and Anroid applications without having a WeWALK Smart Cane. You can use these features below:

- Accessible navigation: WeWALK App offers more accessible navigation than other navigation applications like Google Maps. So you can easily reach the location you want to go. Also "What's around me feature" is coming soon.

- Public Transportation Integration: Your can learn nearby stops and learn upcoming buses with their timetables while waiting at the stop. (This feature is currently only available in Istanbul Turkey. However WeWALK developers are working to support all countries. You can contact the developer team if you want to use it in your country.)

WeWALK will use world-class AI and machine learning algorithms to develop new features, understand how its product is being held and used, and how people move in social situations.
