Could Glidance Make Mobility Easier For Blind People?

In this episode of Double Tap, hosts Steven Scott and Shaun Preece dive into a discussion about Glidance, a new mobility aid that’s capturing the attention of the tech and accessibility communities. Unlike traditional mobility aids, Glidance is designed to provide blind and visually impaired people with a guide dog-like experience, but without some of the challenges that come with actual guide dogs.

To discuss the new technology, Steven talks to co-founder Amos Millar, and discusses the technology behind Glidance and its use of sensors, AI, and cameras to navigate and steer users safely to their destinations. They discuss how Glidance can resist or take over steering to keep its user safe, highlighting its potential to improve mobility for visually impaired people by offering an intuitive and easy-to-use solution. Miller’s personal experience and commitment to inclusivity and practical utility shine through as he discusses the design choices, potential integration with existing navigation apps, and the importance of making the technology accessible and affordable.
