Navigating Life with the Help of Self-Driving Car Technology: A New Hope for the Blind

AI Guided is providing the visually impaired with a helping hand (or belt!) at CES in Las Vegas. Their tech combines optical and Lidar technology, AI-powered on-device computing, and more to help identify obstacles and navigate.

Since January 2020, the company has been working on the product. In mid-2021 they plan to build their first prototypes and ship by October 2023. They are aiming for an 8-hour battery life, as well as full autonomy even when Wi-Fi or cellular data isn’t available. No word yet on pricing.

The company is launching an Indiegogo campaign later this month to make Guidi a reality.
