Vision, The United Arab Emirates:- The Austrian company "Tech Innovation" has succeeded in creating smart shoes they called "Enomike", which use ultrasound sensors to help the blind and visually impaired to discover obstacles and obstacles with a range of up to four meters.

The shoe could become a modern alternative to white sticks, and millions of people around the world would depend on it to get around as safely as possible.

The currently available model relies on obstacle detection sensors, vibration warning and audible alert on a smartphone connected to Bluetooth.

The "Enomike" shoe is powered by a heavy duty battery that can last for up to one week, depending on the frequency of use. The battery can be charged in just three hours using the "USB" cable.

The company’s director, Marcus Raver, who suffers from a visual impairment, said, “The ultrasound sensors on the front of the shoe detect obstructions of up to four meters.

Then, it warns the wearer with vibration or sound signals, which works very well, and it really helps me a lot. "

But the developer will not be satisfied with that, as it is currently working on a more advanced version that includes artificial intelligence technologies, in order to know the nature of the obstacles and obstacles, not just discover them.

The company entered into a cooperation and partnership agreement with the "Graz" University of Technology, in order to develop the latest deep learning algorithms similar to neural networks that can analyze the information provided by the sensors and cameras integrated in the shoe to determine whether the area is free of obstacles as well as distinguish between different types of obstacles, whether they are A car, a wall, a pit, a ladder, etc.

The current version of the waterproof shoe is already available for purchase on the company's website for 3,200 euros ($ 3,850) per pair, without the camera, which is still in progress.

The company's next step is also to use the data collected by the shoe to create a kind of street view map for visually impaired people.
