Turning obstacle detection on/off

You can use WeWALK app or the smart cane’s touchpad to turn obstacle detection on or off.

Using the app:

  1. Open WeWALK app and ensure your cane is paired with the app.
  2. Tap the Preferences tab
  3. Toggle the obstacle detection switch on/off

Using WeWALK cane:

You can disable obstacle detection by taking two fingers and placing them on the top of the WeWALK touchpad. Swipe both fingers downwards towards the bottom of the touchpad (towards yourself). You may need to do this 1-2 times until you feel the vibration motor of the touchpad stop vibrating. Once it stops, you know that the obstacle detection has been disabled.
