Assistance system for the blind
Blindbot is the name of a Robot that uses a 3D scanner and artificial intelligence to guide the blind - similar to a guide dog. This solves the problem of guide dogs being able to work for only two hours and significantly reduces the workload for elderly blind persons, compared to a guide dog. A Positive side effect is that such a Robot could be sold for about CHF 12.000 compared to CHF 65.000. This is highly attractive to health insurances being the customer of all aids for the blind.
