New Guide System for Vision Loss
vision lossThe “white cane” may one day have an upgrade. As scientists continue to trudge down the path toward autonomous cars, one man is fulfilling his dream of a “self-driving” cane. Kelvin Crosby is an entrepreneur who created the start-up "Smart Guider." The product:  a “self-driving” cane for the blind and visually impaired. It has a motorized wheel that can guide users around obstacles.

“If a car can go 65 miles-per-hour, why can’t I make a blind cane and put all of the technology in a stick? That’s where the vision came from,” said Crosby, who is legally blind due to Usher Syndrome Type II. “At the end of the day, if I want to be successful in life, I need to be independent.”

At SDCB, we offer vision rehabilitation services that rebuild independence. Please contact us to learn more.
