CES is not only about the futuristic cars or amazing speakers at all. There are some other devices that are weird and helpful at the same time. One of them is Dring Smartcane, an ancient mobility tool digitized with a motion sensor. Manufactured by Nov’in, a French startup, this smartcane is designed for the aged, crippled and people with low mobility. It can track a user movement with the help of its built-in accelerometer and gyroscope.
Dring Smartcane features an alert system, which connects directly to a GSM network and alerts the caregiver if there’s an emergency. The caregiver can get complete information about the cane user as the sensor inside the cane comes with a GPS. There’s no need to pair this smartcane to any other device as it connects with GSM. It will automatically call the caregivers or send them message or email. S/he can choose to respond with a signal so the smartcane user knows that someone has been informed.
Cane built with Artificial Intelligence
The smartcane comes with a built-in AI system that can process the data to understand user’s movements, walking habits to presume user activity, tiredness, and other changes. The data then send to a secure server for further analysis.
The futuristic cane also looks as authentic as centuries-old traditional cane thanks to Maison Fayet, a century-old cane maker who helped make the simple cane concealing all the sensors in the grip. The cane is expected to ship at the end of this year.
