Customizing obstacle detection settings through the smart cane

You modify WeWALK’s obstacle detection feature with this setting. WeWALK detects front-facing obstacles, above chest level when obstacle detection is enabled.

  • The obstacle detection distances are min, low, mid, and max and can be set between 80 Centimetres to 165 Centimetres.
  • We recommend setting obstacle detection to max setting when using your cane outdoors to ensure maximum detection. To set the optimum obstacle detection distance, we recommend you stand in front of a flat wall to test each setting and find the one that suits you best.

To change obstacle detection settings:

  1. Open the voice menu by doing a single finger double-tap on the smart cane’s touchpad
  2. Swipe left to right with one finger to swipe through the voice menu settings until you hear Preferences
  3. Swipe left to right until you hear obstacle detection and double-tap to select it. Swipe left to right again until you’ve selected the obstacle detection setting that you would like. Double-tap again to apply the change.
