prof. Paolo Vacca
I'm born in 1957 and living in Lombardy (Italy). Professor of electrical engineering with an interest in the development of projects that have an impact on improving the quality of life in general, both for the individual and for able-bodied people with disabilities.
Description of the device
The device in question is intended to provide a valuable aid to people who are blind or visually impaired people by providing them with sensory information on the obstacles they may encounter is moving indoors and those outdoors.
The stick is fitted with electronics that can alert you if obstacles arise that present a danger to the safety of the subject: changes in the level of the floor, which is to descend to climb, obstacles present to the right or left in the direction of its path or obstacles suspended, giving real-time information of sensory (vibrating) or type of voice on the nature of the obstacles.
It also comes with dual front wheel to provide additional sensory information on the uneven ground. The whole is powered by interchangeable batteries that provide a long autonomy of use.
The system can be customized according to customer needs, being able to set the levels and thresholds of the sensors, such as the minimum distance detection of obstacles and level variations of the floor. The everything with an accuracy of about 1cm in both the horizontal and vertical. Made of aluminum alloy, combining lightness and practicality in considerable strength.
It 'an innovative system that replaces, for the first time, the classic white cane that so far has been the only means of which they could have the blind!
Why support us
With your contribution you give the opportunity to market a device that will introduce a new tool to aid mobility of the blind, making them more independent and safe in the walk.
With fundraising, we would like to equip the stick of more sophisticated electronics that can withstand any kind of adversity.
It will help us to produce the first samples to give to associations of blind people with whom we are in contact.
Thanks to you, we may make the most important step of our journey.
Give us a hand? Force support us !!!
