Alexcane


Alexcane for visually impaired

2018/2019 cohort | Health Technologies
Developed in Kenya, AlexCane is an AI-smart cane for the blind. It detects static and moving objects and alerts the user via earphones or a vibrating grip. It also sends caregivers real-time information about the user via a cloud-connected camera and Google Maps. This increases freedom of movement and lowers dependency on caregivers for the blind.
Alexcane is a beneficiary of Leaders in Innovation Fellowship
