PROTOTYPE------Walkman is a prototype designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. Walkman is a wearable assistive technology created to aid a person who is blind walk without bumping into obstacles. It uses sonar sensor to detect obstacles in a user’s path and provide haptic feedback about the obstacles ahead.

Technical Specifications: 

Walkman copies the skills of animals such as bats, which emit sonar calls into their surroundings and use the echoes bouncing back from nearby objects to divert around them. Walkman sends out ultrasound waves and detects them on their return, and uses vibrations to inform users of any obstacles in their way.
