Distance Detective Glove (2014)
Department of Global School of Media
This glove is for the low vision people to detect far away objects easily with LED and vibration feedback. Ultra sensor detects the distance data and send to Arduino. Arduino calculate the data and give feed to user by vibrating motor and light led. It is more convenient than assistive canes. Therefore, visually impaired people can detect not only ground but also upper body too. Used lithium ion battery so it can be easily recharged by the USB or smartphone charger. On/Off switch is a flex sensor, so If user bends wrist, it automatically activates itself.
