My name is Kürşat Ceylan, I am the co-founder of WeWALK and blind since birth.
2 years ago, I went to New York to give a speech at the United Nations.
While I was going to my hotel from the airport, with only two hands I was trying to use my cane, pull my luggage, and check the GPS directions on my phone at the same time. Not surprisingly, during this struggle all of a sudden, I bumped into a pole. With a reflex coming from years of experience, my hand went to my head. Needless to say, it was bloody. I have no problem with my scars, I know they make me more handsome but I don't need a new one.
These are not only my problems. According to the World Health Organization, there are 253 million visually impaired people in the world That is why We created WeWALK
WeWALK attaches to the traditional white cane, transforming it into an innovative smart cane. This technology increases visually impaired people’s independence and promotes full- participation in society via three of its features.
- Detects obstacles at the head and chest level.
- Gives turn-by-turn and clockwise navigation.
- Navigate to all nearby bus stops and access bus timetables.
- Learn what’s around you like popular places, restaurants, pubs, and cafes
- Talk to Alexa Voice Assistant.
