Smart gadgets have appeared in the List of technical means of rehabilitation. For the first time since 2005, electronic aids for the orientation of the blind have been added to this list. In particular, the domestically produced Robin smart camera, which captures the surrounding image and analyzes it with the help of artificial intelligence. Blind citizens of the Russian Federation will be able to get this camera, as well as other gadgets, free of charge from the state by contacting the social security authorities.

The Robin camera was developed by the non-profit organization Sensor-Tech Laboratory, it helps blind people to bypass obstacles, identify surrounding objects, recognize faces and even read texts.

The camera is capable of recognizing 50 objects that were selected by blind people. The list includes the most necessary items and objects, such as a table, a chair, dishes, hygiene items, a computer, a telephone, pets, a car, road signs, pedestrian crossings, and more. Another feature of the device is the ability to recognize faces. The camera calls out the names of people who are in the lens’ view, but for this a photo with a person must be uploaded or taken to the device. Using the gadget, you can read ordinary books and documents, find out the bus number, read price tags in stores or any other information on signs.

Another advantage of the Robin device is the ability to connect a blind user with a professional typhoid specialist via video, who can help to figure something out or suggest something. The gadget does not require an internet connection, so you can use it anywhere.
