How might we help people with vision loss in China confidently walk in public space?
In China, about 6 million people suffer visual impairment, accounting for 18% of the world's blind population.
In the current market, there are only a small amount of products providing indoor navigation.
In China, imperfect infrastructure，discrimination, and low incomes are the main reasons why we rarely see the blind in the streets.
