Our project is primarily a technology-push product, in which we leveraged the advantages of an existence technology called proximity sensor. The team focused on utilizing and matching the appropriate application of the technology with the market needs. Since the technology is proven, the possibility of risks substantially reduced. The first phase, called “phase zero,” is to identify the opportunity by exploring the market necessities. Our team conducted various types of research to understand the market needs. With personal motives, the team showed the interests to assist the visually impaired community for the freedom and independence with their physical activities.
