Every society has a different approach to handling disability. Often it is based on costs and benefits, where some costs are covered by the society.
Our goal is to use technology to provide wearable tools, for everyday use, at moderate costs for these nearly 300 million people.
Causes • Colors • Imagination
It makes a difference whether visual impairment originated from birth or later on due to illness, as this strongly influences the perception of dimensions, objects, colors and thus the mental representation.
This needs to be considered in the implementation of our tools where we being responsible of.
Sounds • Braille • Fast reading
The ear of a the visually impaired is extremely challenged to hear and interpret sounds created by their movement and the surrounding environment. Other information is captured via fast acoustic reading or via the sense of touch, via braille or via haptic signals. Therefore our tools provide haptic feedback instead of sound.
Orientation and Mobility
White Cane • Guide Dog • Announces
The cane makes it possible to recognize the surface and objects in its reach and to sense them finely. A guide dog provides additional information through his trained behavior. Announcements on traffic connections provide further important information.
Do the right things • Do it right
As portable devices, all components must be small, lightweight, compatible and low in energy consumption. Sonar, time of flight laser, accelerometer, thermometer and vibrator as well as microcontroller, charger and USB connection are choosen for to fulfil this needs.
Requirements • Behavior • Intrinsic capabilities
To understand a use case does not only mean formulating the requirement, it also means to know the essential causes and causal relationships. We therefore have our products shaped, verified, developed and tested by those affected (the visually impaired).
Investors • Partners • D-A-CH • EU • Worldwide
We are looking for organizations of the visually impaired. investors and partners in the D-A-CH region and later the entire EU to co-design the product.
We, as well as our investors and partners, are innovators who want to provide unique and affordable products for the visually impaired worldwide with myE&E.
SMART – DESIGN
Sensible • Modular • Autonomous • Reliable Tech.
SMART itself has established as a future-oriented design method. Essential characteristics are the means and procedures that lead to the internal as well as external quality of the product as well as sustainable benefits. SMART is oriented towards providing the best technologically feasible benefits.
Deep • Intelligent • Complete • Elegant • Emotive
myE&E products like sense are DICEE, i.e: Deep, Intelligent, Complete, Elegant, Emotive.
With highly adaptive device and service features, they create a corresponding customer experience.
Once experienced, you will not want to be without them anymore.
The value of sense to customers is, that the device can be used when and where it is needed by replacing the white cane or used in conjunction with it.
This will contribute to frequent use of sense, resulting in increased mobility, safety, opportunities at work and integration of visually impaired people.
This product has an important role in the integration, safety of accidents, insurance cost savings and mobility of visually impaired people in the society.
Organizations and enterprises serving or employing visually impaired people will benefit from sense as it facilitates their business transactions and better integration in the workplace.
The Society is interested in supporting the integration of the visual impaired.
The innovation in myE&E sense is that guidance for visually impaired people will be available with a small wearable device, and can delivered economically to any person in the world.
Customers may let the costs for the device get covered, e.g. by insurances.
As a result of lesser accidents and gained mobility values will insurances, e.g. the social security, health insurance, employer or foundations cover the cost of the device especially for poor people, in order to make the cheap device useable by everyone of the target group.
We integrate social services (e.g. organizations, care givers) in the testing and product provision.
