Help your loved ones gain confidence, mobility freedom, and independenceWe bring you a smart cane for the blind—with enhanced capabilities that reduces head-level and fall accidents.
In a world without sight, we use technology to give your loved ones a reason to get out there and live life to the fullest!
Research shows that over 90% of blind and visually impaired persons experience accidents—overhanging branches or obstacles—resulting in a fall even while using a white cane. Such accidents often require medical attention, changed walking habits, and reduced confidence as independent travelers.
Introducing BAWA Cane as a solution through innovative technologies to detect obstacles better and recreating hope. We envision BAWA Cane to be the centre of all things for a blind and visually impaired person from how they move, how they commute, to how they interact with other people and smart devices.
Blind people wish to walk around on their own without anyone else’s assistance and this can be achieved with great benefit by owning a BAWA Cane.
The BAWA Cane Team’s mission is
“to revolutionize the way visually impaired could better perceive their environment by empowering them with technological support”

By introducing BAWA Cane to the people you care about, you can help them avoid tripping and falling and hurting themselves while walking.
With the BAWA Cane you become more confident and feel less anxious about your visually impaired family and friends who loves going out for an adventure of their own.
By giving a BAWA Cane, you are recreating hope for your loved ones and instilling them with confidence to be active independently. Studies shows that individuals with visual impairment who travel more frequently outdoors are at lower risk of head-level or fall accidents.
BAWA Cane as mobility aids are safer, faster, and more dynamic which seemingly translates into mobility confidence. Increasing mobility confidence translates to an increase of social contact and independence.

How BAWA Cane works?
Existing white canes (walking sticks) only help visionless people detect obstacles below–knee whereas, BAWA Cane helps them detect obstacles up to 1.2 meters (≈ 4 foot) above–waist.
BAWA Cane—blind walking cane with sensors—utilises available advanced technologies such as internet of things (IoT) and big data analytics to guide your loved ones and keep them safe.
Its dual sensors will perfectly detect not only large obstacles such as steps, drops, and overhead objects but also something as small as a tennis ball.
The device can work independently, beeping when it detects an obstacle. Enhanced features like voice navigation, prediction and personalisation can be enabled by connecting wirelessly to a smartphone.
BAWA Cane is the clip-on, IoT device powered by big data analytics that can help visually impaired people navigate and reach a destination—even if it is their first time at a location—safely avoiding hazards along their way there to fulfil whatever their wants and needs are.

That knock on the head that we are all too familiar
BAWA Cane detects overhanging (above–knee) obstacle such as signboards and branches. These obstacles are geotagged for the benefits of all our users.
That loud honk and tire screeching wondering this is it
BAWA Cane ensures our users reach their destination safely with the assistance of a voice–over navigation. Our wayfinding algorithm is customised with utmost importance to safety.
That ugh as our arm gets caught on railings
BAWA Cane detects even the smallest of obstacles like handrails of stairs or objects that generally have a narrower base. Beeps 4 steps before coming into contact allowing path change.
