Sensus

Sensus - a wearable adjustable navigation device for the blind and visually impaired. It uses an infrared sensor which detects an obstacle and sends a vibration that intensifies when an obstacle is getting closer. The device can be attached to almost anything. It uses different parts that can be easily inserted in the device: a clip, a ring, a clip to attach it to the white cane and an armband. These parts fit in a compact case where device can also be charged. The shape of this device was inspired by a pillow. A pillow is an object that softens the edges, it is personal and means comfort. The main criteria for the design of this device was to make it look more like a personal object, an accessory for the blind to be worn as an aesthetic item which emphasizes the beauty and touch, not the disability.
Tested by the blind, received positive feedback.
