"Our obstacle detection device is a wearable device made to help blind and visually impaired people navigate more easily through their everyday environment. The device is made to be comfortable to wear, lightweight, non-intrusive and cost-effective. To ensure the quality of the product, drop tests and humidity tests simulating real-world environmental wear will also be briefly discussed to address the reliability against mechanical shock and moisture induced electrical failure."
