Design II: Long Cane

For my Design II class, the final capstone of the Mechanical Engineering program, we (my two partners and I) chose to redesign and improve the long white cane, often used by the visually impaired. By installing distance sensors along the length of the cane with a novel haptic feedback system in the handle we were able to transmit meaningful data to the user that they would not have had otherwise.
