Lighthouse Tech aims to benefit blind and vision impaired people, their families, wider social networks, and society as a whole. LTH01 promotes safe, independent outdoor mobility, increasing sense of self-sufficiency and wellbeing and reducing access barriers to opportunities.
Detection of obstacles above the waist
The white cane is trusted to identify obstacles at ground level but it cannot protect users above the waist.
LTH01 complements the white cane by detecting hazards above the waist and alerting users to protect them from collision and injury.
An eyewear frame to help people living with low vision and blindness get outside with confidence
How it works
LTH01 is our first-generation eyewear frame for people with vision impairment, blindness, and spatial perceptual disorders.
1. Front-facing sensors report the location and distance to obstacles in the user's path.
2. Users are alerted of imminent collisions via vibratory feedback.
Auxiliary vibrating receptors can be worn over the wrist or elsewhere on the body. Our algorithms ensure users receive important warnings while filtering distractions.
Fashion frames with a high-tech core
Sensors and electronics are incorporated modularly in eyewear temples allowing users to select fashion eyewear frame components.
The LTH01 modular series is ready to be incorporated into fashion eyewear collections. We want to help people with vision loss to feel comfortable and look good! Talk to our design team to learn more.
