Blind people are constantly at risk for being hit by cars which they cannot see. Especially in contemporary society where cars are getting quieter and quieter (electric cars produce essentially no noise) it is extremely important to be able to alert blind people of oncoming traffic. My invention aims to produce a simple wireless communication between an approaching car and the cane of a blind individual. The result of this warning would be both a beeping noise for the blind individual to hear as well as a noticeable vibration warning the individual. This invention will undoubtedly aid in decreasing the number of deaths of blind people by cars.
