One of the champions AI Guided breaks the record for most awards in the grand final, and received 4 awards. The winning invention named GUIDi, a lightweight smart wearable device, provides assistance in navigation and independent mobility of the visually impaired and comes along with an intelligence platform.
The visually impaired are getting a helping hand (or a helping belt, as it were) from Hong Kong startup AI Guided. At CES in Las Vegas, the company was showing off some pretty neat tech that incorporates optical and lidar technology along with AI-powered on-device computing to identify obstacles and help with navigation.
The company estimates that around 1.1 billion people around the world make use of smart wearables every day. Such devices can improve quality of life, and Al Guided's technology has the potential to revolutionise the way people travel and navigate the world in the future. (p. 81)
