Even if one is proficient at using a white cane for navigation there are still some obstacles that will go undetected by even the most experienced traveler.  Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey talk with Diego Mendoza, Business Development director at Sunu Co., about how the Sunu Band, worn around one’s wrist, can provide tactile feedback to help avoid such obstacles.

Using radar and augmented reality, Sunu Band enables people who are low vision and blind to travel with confidence. Advanced haptic feedback guides your way around any obstacle, and navigation sensors connect you to the world that’s around you.
