Obstacle detection


Scene description


What is NOA?

Using artificial intelligence, NOA scans your surroundings and warns you with spatial sounds about potential obstacles. Thanks to its ultra-wide angle cameras, NOA is the only solution that can identify head-level obstacles like branches, ground-level obstacles like holes, and side-obstacles such as electric scooters.

On top of obstacle detection, NOA will guide you with precise GPS navigation instructions outdoors & help you identify open areas when indoors.

If you're lost or want a description of your environment, press the "AI button" on your right and get a full, precise description of the scene directly in your headphones.

From all the technologies we have tested, NOA is probably the best obstacle detection system

biped has one ambition: build the ultimate mobility solution. It's a complement to white canes and guide dogs. It was developed with over 250 beta-testers, low vision professionals, O&M trainers, and the ophthalmic hospital Jules Gonin in Switzerland. It took biped 3 years of R&D and a world-first collaboration with Honda Research Institute to come to life

NOA was designed with orientation and mobility specialists from the ground up. We designed NOA as a complement, that does not interfere with the white cane technique. We also created a smartphone application that allows O&M trainers to visualize, in real-time, what NOA generates: obstacles location, GPS instructions and AI descriptions. O&M trainers can customize users’ experience with deeper settings access and dedicated training material.
