Team Udayavani, Jul 27, 2020, 5:08 PM IST

A student at Loughborough University has designed a “robotic guide dog” that will help support visually impaired people who are unable to house a real animal

The product named ‘Theia’ is  designed by Anthony Camu, , a final year Industrial Design and Technology student .

It replicates the functions of a guide dog as well as programming quick and safe routes to destinations using real-time data.

The device is portable and  guides users through outdoor environments and large indoor spaces with very little input.

Theia guides  users to a place, processes real-time data available online, such as traffic density (pedestrians and cars) and weather. It physically leads the users instead of telling them which way to move.
