Smart Assistant For The Blind “Robin”

Smart assistant for the blind “Robin” is a new assistive device, which allows blind people to better orientate indoors and outdoors. “Robin” can recognize objects – up to 50 units, people and their faces, determine distance to them and detect obstacles by means of an ultrasonic rangefinder. When AI in “Robin” recognizes an object, it voices it through headphones. To warn a user about unexpected obstacles, “Robin” transmits information by vibrations of different intensity. It works without Internet connection or third-party applications. Developed as a complement to a white cane, it is simple to use and does not require long training.
