FOR NEW LIMITS.
FOR BLIND RUNNERS
At WAIBROsports, we are developing a belt that should enable blind and visually impaired athletes to use sports tracks independently, as a first step, and then other sports should follow. Since these are currently mostly still dependent on accompanying athletes.
It recognizes running tracks in sports-venues and
upcoming obstacles on standardized running tracks.
The lines on sports tracks are recognized by a camera in the belt,
and at the same time the position of the runner in the lane. The visually impaired athlete is corrected in the running direction via vibration impulses and navigated along the route.
