FORD CREATED SMART GLASSES THAT HELP BLIND PEOPLE “SEE”

The Ford car manufacturer, together with the Italian start-up company Aedo, has developed the Feel The View system, which will allow blind people to experience the world around them.

The technology is installed on one of the windows of the car . At the heart of her work is photographing landscapes. To take a picture, you must press a special button. Next, the device converts the resulting photo into an image with 255 grayscale. The image appears on the glass according to the principle of Braille.

The picture has vibrations of varying intensity. The person feels them with small pads of fingers. Thus, the effect of creating a frame in the form of a relief-dotted tactile font occurs. Also, the technology has a voice assistant , which recreates the sound description of the landscape.
