A Technological Revolution for the Blind and Visually Impaired

A major innovation enabling a new perception of their environment, thereby allowing greater autonomy.


In collaboration with major associations and institutions: Artha invents a product for the visually impaired and blind designed for them with them.

This device offers autonomy to visually impaired people, giving them the means to develop a completely new perception of their environment. It consists of a mini-camera, clipped onto glasses, which communicates the person's 3D environment in haptic language. It is connected to a lumbar belt that tactilely reproduces these images on the back thanks to a built-in artificial intelligence.

Five Star Testimonials from Testers

"This device is revolutionary. I'm impressed with the level of autonomy it brings. Handling it comes naturally and quickly. I can't wait to be able to use it on a daily basis on my travels."


Law Student doing his Master’s

"Last week, I tested Artha's belt twice and was really surprised by how effective it was. After 20 minutes, I was able to walk between two people without touching them, knowing that I had a mask over my eyes. I could move around feeling the obstacles around me."


Teacher of braille

"This device will provide a complement to the cane. With the right training, it can bring real added value and it sees what the rod can't detect."


Physical Therapist

"I'm blown away. I find it very innovative. It's fascinating to be guided through a 3D reproduction on the skin. If you need me to be one of the actors, I'm there."


former member of the military

"It's quite ambitious to propose this in 2022. On Trackmania, I manage to accomplish circuits easily, whereas in the beginning, I found them complicated. On the road, I could see cars, bicycles and a fountain."


player of Trackmania, a video game

"I'm amazed by this concept of haptic representation that can be tamed quite quickly for movements that are still cautious, but nevertheless fluid. A real revolution for blind people looking to improve the quality of their movements outside."

The most frequently asked questions by users:

The image filmed by the camera is transcribed on the user's back thanks to small taps generated by the haptic belt. These subtle impulses, felt through the clothing, create a haptic representation that draws objects and obstacles captured by the camera, thus providing a tactile perception of the environment.

Like any new tool, it takes a short period of time to get used to it, but our device is designed to be intuitive. Within a few minutes of use, users are usually able to intuitively perceive large objects thanks to the haptic representation provided by the device.

The technology manages moving objects by allowing users to feel the movement of these objects on their backs through haptic sensations. This experience is intuitive, similar to hearing a car passing nearby, providing a natural haptic representation of the movement of surrounding objects.

The device is able to detect small obstacles through cameras similar to those found in smartphones. If a smartphone can take a picture of an object, our technology will also be able to detect it, providing reliable detection of obstacles, including the smallest ones.

The system understands the relief and depth of an object by transmitting haptic volumes. Very quickly, testers cease differentiating between the sensations of the device and spatial hearing/sense of masses, thus offering users a super sense of masses with the technology.

The device works at night, but it is most effective during the day or in low-light conditions. Although it is operational in the dark, accuracy may be slightly affected compared to illuminated environments.

Coming to grips with the device can be slightly tiring at first, but it quickly becomes more restful to use. Thanks to the haptic representation of the environment, users need not be constantly on guard, allowing for more effective anticipation and more comfortable use in the long run.

Using the device is very simple, just plug it in and it works. For those who wish, advanced options are available to further customize the experience, but the basic handling is accessible to everyone.

The benefits of the device extend to people with visual impairments, such as people with low vision and the blind. It can also be used as an adjunct when using a guide dog, a white cane, or an audio description. The rehabilitation and mobility of visually impaired pedestrians can be improved through obstacle detection, making the device a valuable tool for these people.
