Using radar and augmented reality, Sunu Band enables people who are low vision and blind to travel with confidence. Advanced haptic feedback guides your way around any obstacle, and navigation sensors connect you to the world that’s around you.
Designed for when you canâ€™t easily use sight or due to a vision impairment, Sunu Band enables you to walk and travel with confidence. Sunu Band is the only smart-band that guides your way around obstacles. It uses sonar or echolocation to detect objects up to 16 feet or 5.5 meters away. Then haptic vibration feedback informs how close (or far away) you are to obstacles. Sunu Band compliments the white cane, guide dog or low vision. This smart-band augments your personal awareness, and reduces accidents to the body, chest, arms and head. Sunu Band is the only intelligent travel aid with more built-in sensors than any other device in the market. Explore and navigate unfamiliar places with Sunu Bandâ€™s haptic compass, place finder/explorer and GPS navigation app. Now you can enjoy the personal freedom of always knowing where you are, whatâ€™s around you, and how to get there with Sunu Band.
Sunu Band is a sonar smartband that improves navigation for the visually impaired. Sunu Band combines sonar or echolocation with gentle precise vibrations to inform the user about objects or obstacles within their environment. Sunu Band augments awareness of the userâ€™s personal space, reduces accidents and ultimately improves confidence while providing a more fluid and enjoyable mobility.
Users of Sunu Band wear it in conjunction with the cane or guide dog to augment awareness and complement mobility by detecting obstacles to the body and head in a way that's discreet and unobtrusive.
The band emits a high-frequency sound wave that bounces off of objects that the user encounters, and the resulting vibratory pattern changes depending on how close or far away the object is to the user. Specifically, the user feels vibration pulses on the wrist that become more frequent as an object is close or less frequent as the object is farther away.
With advanced features such as: Complementary mobility aid, you will detect upper body obstacles from your knees to your head up to 15 feet ahead. Hands free. Since users do not need to hold or carry it in their bag, full of devices. Once in the wrist is ready for use and includes smart gestures.
