Eye-Runner

The project team strives to develop and produce a wearable assistive device targeted for use by the visually impaired. Putting sensors, buzzers, vibrators and a navigation system to work in coordination, the device will guide its bearers to the pre-set direction and warn them of obstacles ahead. It allows visually impaired athletes to pursue running activities independently and safely on the running tracks. To maximise the reach to its target beneficiaries, the product will be offered mainly through rental schemes in cooperation with blind societies and voluntary organisations.

本項目團隊致力為視障人士研發穿戴式運動輔助儀器,利用感測器、蜂鳴器、震動裝置和導航系統,指示使用者朝向預設方向和避開障礙物。這輔助儀器可協助視障人士克服身體障礙,於運動場上享受一個安全而獨立的跑步空間。為接觸及吸納更多使用者,本項目將和視障人士團體和志願組織合作,並主要以租借形式提供產品。
