Technology Aiding Visually Impaired PeopleThere are almost 253 million visually impaired people globally; 36 million of which are blind. Assistive technology is instrumental in the lives of people living with vision loss and blindness.
There are many forms of technology aiding visually impaired people, many of which can be accessed in one’s smartphone. Still, many people still rely heavily on their white cane and guide dogs. However, a new AI-powered backpack, which is a portable assistive solution for people with visual impairment, could replace the need for guide dogs and canes one day.
