Innomake II

Tec-Innovation has been working since 2016 to combine the existing ultrasound technology with a self-developed camera system.

Modern image processing algorithms can not only detect obstacles but also identify them. Thus, it is also possible to actively guide you, for example to a pedestrian crossing, towards a traffic light or towards a set of stairs.

The user can configure, with the help of an app, which types of objects he should be notified about.

By utilizing a camera a problem that often occurs in cities can be circumvented. Often crosswalks do not cross the street at a 90 degree angle, so that a blind person is at risk of accidentally leaving the crosswalk. A camera based detection scheme can warn the user against leaving the crosswalk laterally.
