Ray - Powered Mobility Aid
Description

Ray as a very handy ultrasound orientation aid is a mobility aid which is a sensitive
addition of additional information to the cane for the blind which the cane does not reach.

Like the beam of a flashlight, the ultrasonic cone scans its surroundings and optionally reports
via acoustic signal or vibrations possible obstacles in any direction.

Despite its light weight and simple operation, Ray also enables light measurements by means of a light sensor
.
