The Sixth Sense


For the visually impaired

2019/2020 cohort | Health Technologies
The Sixth Sense is a hand-held mobility assistive device that aids the visually impaired in walking thus enabling an experience of the freedom of independent movement. Using echolocation and sonar, same as is used by bats and dolphins in object detection and applying modern concepts in IoT, AI & machine learning and Big Data, the devices are built to be the ultimate walking companion to the visually impaired.
The Sixth Sense is a beneficiary of Leaders in Innovation Fellowship
