About the Pilot

We have two pilots in our team, with Dongyue Cai serving as the primary pilot and Jiajun Yang as the backup pilot. Dongyue Cai is visually impaired, while Jiajun Yang has low vision.

About the Device

Our device is an experimental product currently in development. The device utilizes a worn camera assembly to recognize the surrounding environment, including information about obstacles and depth. It analyses and provides feedback to the user through vibrations and sound effects. We believe our product will ultimately bring convenience to individuals who are blind or have low vision.
