How Ara works in 3 simple steps.

Step 1
Scanning the world around you.

Ara's ultrasonic and lidar sensors continuously scan your surroundings, mapping out your environment.

Step 2
Instantly recognizing obstacles.

Ara's powerful AI processes information in real time. It determines nearby obstacles and categorizes them by height level: top, mid, and low.  Ara will only alert you about obstacles relevant to your movement.

Step 3
Translating findings into vibration patterns.

Ara communicates its findings to you through your sense of touch. Instead of overwhelming you with raw data, Ara translates its insights into intuitive vibration patterns, making it easy for you to grasp and react.

How can Ara help?
A Breakdown of Ara’s Features

Walk safely: anytime, everywhere.

Stay collision-free with Ara's instant obstacle detection.

Using advanced sensors, Ara scans the environment in real-time, identifying potential obstacles in the user's path.

Ara provides accurate and timely alerts through haptic vibration patterns, ensuring you can navigate your surroundings with confidence.

Feel your way through.

Ara breaks down language barriers by using the sense of touch.

The vibration patterns vary based on the location of detected obstacles, whether they're at the top, mid, or low level.

This intuitive "haptic language" eliminates the need for users to learn new cues or signals. It's designed to be universally understood, breaking down language barriers.

Customize your experience

Whether with the white cane or a companion, Ara works to meet your needs.

Enhance your trusted navigation methods with Ara's 'White Cane Mode.'

It complements your cane or guide dog by muting low-level alerts while keeping you informed of higher obstacles.

Forget the On/Off switch.
