About the Program
Join us for an introduction to the WeWALK smart cane and app! WeWALK is a smart cane

navigation, carefully designed for blind and low vision users. WeWALK’s smart city
integration gives information about the world around you such as public transportation
options and an exploration mode to help you discover popular points of interests near
