FIRMWARE DESIGN

A wearable mobility tool

The BuzzClip is a small wearable for people that are blind or partially sighted. The device uses ultrasound to detect obstacles that may lie directly in one’s path. It then notifies the user of these obstacles through intuitive vibrations, allowing the user to safely navigate around any objects that they may encounter. The BuzzClip offers essential head level obstacle detection and can be easily attached to most forms of clothing, making it highly versatile and useful device. Designed for iMerciv, a Canadian company.

project scope

NeuronicWorks was tasked to design the firmware for the BuzzClip that allows to detect obstacle and provides a variety of feedback depending on the proximity of the obstacle.

quality of feedback

Our team worked on this project in collaboration with the clients team and created a firmware for existing hardware board that produces a relaiable obstacle detection and following sensory feedback.
