Now the iPhone will tell the blind where and how far people are

Now the iPhone will tell the blind where and how far people are

 Apple has added an accessibility feature to the latest beta of the iOS system. Which can detect people's presence and distance from the iPhone's camera.

This will enable the visually impaired user to effectively maintain social distance as well as facilitate many other tasks. This feature is created from Apple's AR Kit.

Based on this, the company developed 'People's Inclusion' by recognizing the size of people and allowing virtual content to pass through their front and back.

Apple's Accessibility team felt that it could be combined with the actual distance from the Lidar unit provided by the iPhone Twelve Pro and Pro Max, which could be very useful for anyone with vision problems.

Of course, one immediately thought that it would be helpful to stay 6 feet away from other people during the current epidemic. This new feature will be a part of the Magnifier app.

It uses the iPhone Pro and Pro Max's lidar and wide-angle camera and gives users feedback on a variety of solutions. Initially, it will tell the user about the people in the view.

If there is one, it will be updated regularly on theft or meter about how far or near it is. On this basis, a decision can be made to approach the person or move on.

Stereo sound also gives information about the direction in which the camera is located. Another thing is that it allows the user to set a variety of directions for a certain distance.

For example, if the user sets a distance of 6 feet, they will hear one tone when they are 6 feet away and another tone will sound when they are closer. Not everyone needs a feed based on a certain distance.

But everyone thinks of staying two steps away. It also has a third feature. For those who have lost both sight and hearing, the closer they get to another person, the faster the haptic pulse starts.

It also has another visual feature. It helps people who need a little help to understand the world around them.

It can detect and point to the person seen on the screen through an arrow. In fact, blindness can be of different levels and the support needed can vary accordingly. In that case, this feature will be useful.

This system requires a clear picture with a wide-angle camera. In the dark, it can't work. If you want to get detailed information and stay updated, you can go to Apple's Accessibility special site.
