Why is technology there if not helping those in need? The entire point of having technology in places all over is to aid and simplify standard and manual procedures, giving quick results in less time. Take for example, that one arm of technology like artificial Intelligence which is bringing about a revolution in business plus information and technology sectors of the world.
Innovations across has brought tons of changes and there are many firms and companies which are looking into infusing avantgarde technology innately to help those who need it the most.
A visually challenged engineer named Kursat Ceylan came up with a cutting edge and a brilliant innovation called the WeWalk. This a major leap in the field of technology and has immensely automated the manual procedure for all those visually impaired people, who look for which way to go, day in and out. The inventor of this state of the art cane, Kursat Ceylan being blind himself, came to the realization that there was a need to fabricate something that the blind audience should make judicial use of.
The curator of WeWalk, Mr. Kursat Ceylan is also the CEO and co-founder of the Young Group Academy (YGA).
“Unfortunately I cannot name a single city as a perfectly disabled-friendly city that is why we are trying to provide this independence for visually impaired people” shared Ceylan on CNN. “In these days we are talking about flying cars, but these people have been using just a plain stick,” he explained to CNN. “As a blind person, when I am at the Metro station I don’t know which is my exit… I don’t know which bus is approaching… which stores are around me. That kind of information can be provided with the WeWalk.”
This ingenious cane is built in such a way, that all those visually compromised people easily are able to handle and make use of it. WeWalk has built-in speakers, voice assistance, Google Maps, a Bluetooth system which can be synchronized to any other potential devices. Any mundane cane cannot provide such advanced features and is surely to bring about a change in the lives of all those visually impaired. Furthermore, there are high end sensors with a vibration alert mechanism that send signals when above chest level obstacles are within a set proximity.
WeWalk came into existence due to absolute need. This need was felt by Ceylan, and with the inception of WeWalk smart-cane he wanted all those suffering from lack of sight be socially involved and active.
There is a wave of joy among the masses and they are thrilled to have the WeWalk smartcane to their aid.
If numbers are to be brought in, the World Health Organization show that an assessment showed that there are approximately 36 million blind people. Just think of the utilization they can make and benefits innumerable they can gain from WeWalk.
