What is Sense-Able?

It is sensible to use Sense-Able! (Well, you asked…)

Sense-Able is the sensible choice app to help those with visual impairments explore the world around them. Using the LeddarTech® LIDAR, Sense-Able helps you avoid walls, pillars, stairs, and more!

Currently, Sense-Able is a research demo, intended to demonstrate the concept (See the warning below). With Sense-Able, you can detect obstacles using a real-time stream, detect obstacles from recorded sample files, or record your own files for testing.
