i-SCOPE project and the White Cane Safety Day

Today, October 15th, people around the world celebrate White Cane Safety Day. International White Cane Safety Day has been held on 15 October every year since 1964 to celebrate the achievements of visually impaired persons. It also celebrates the white cane as a symbol for blindness and a tool of independence.

Since i-SCOPE in one of 3 scenarios focuses on an assertive technology that will increase safety and better independence of blind and visually impaired people, it must be also considered as a tool of independence. Technologies that we are developing on i-SCOPE are recommended to be used together with a white cane or guided dog in order to enhance safety and free movement of this group of population and that's why this day is important for i-SCOPE team as well.
