Pocket Radar for the Blind

Polish school students have built a pocket radar device for blind people that detects obstacles in the user’s way and warns him with a beep.

The device complements the white cane used by blind people, according to the young designers, who hail from Jastrzębie-Zdrój in southern Poland. While a cane is used to check the surface under the user’s feet, the new pocket radar detects obstacles that the blind person could hit with the upper half of their body, especially their head.

The young designers have been named Innovation Leaders for their invention. They also received a gold medal and a special prize for the best young inventors from Poland at the IWIS Warsaw international invention show and won a gold medal at the Brussels Innova Fair in Brussels, Belgium.
