Crossing streets in our country is not easy due to a lack of road safety education, and being visually impaired makes it even more complicated. The design of a vibrating cane and digitized crosswalk stripes connected to the traffic lights to signal blind people when crossing would improve their lives.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Attendees will:
Become sensitive and willing to apply their knowledge to help others.
Appreciate a design thinking process proposed by students who want to contribute to their society and make a better world for people in need.
How important it is for students to promote projects in which they can apply their knowledge and technological resources and benefit from using them while creating meaningful learning experiences.

Students will be able to make a difference becoming cultural influencers in our country by designing a digital device that will impact positively the life of visually impaired people, creating consciousness among citizens (both drivers and pedestrians).
