In 2010, there were 285million blind and visually impaired people in the world (a 77% increase from 161million in 2002) and that is a number that is still growing. In line with the European Disability Strategy 2010 – 2020 and to provide a technological solution to help the visually blind increase their level of security and independence, Aticser has been developing a kit of small, assistive devices controlled by our visually impaired user-friendly mobile app to help them in their daily lives. Aticser has been working with influential blind associations throughout Europe to produce the T4F Basic Kit, but we hope to improve it according to the comments and suggestions given by individuals and the blind associations that have validated the Basic Kit to produce a new and improved 2.0 Kit based on a modular approach.
