Our BAWA Cane journey
As a result, we created the BAWA Cane to fill this gap.
We are a team of passionate people who strongly believe it is our mission to revolutionize the way visually impaired could better perceive their environment by empowering them with technological support.
Our believe is that even without sight, there is still effective navigation support.
In 2019, having emerged as 1st runner up for Infineon LG > Make Hackathon, BAWACANE (S) SDN BHD is a partner of Infineon Technologies Co-Innovation Space which supports start-ups in viable semiconductor solutions development and fast-tracks their product prototype.
The BAWA Cane Team’s mission is
“to revolutionize the way visually impaired could better perceive their environment by empowering them with technological support”
