An ability to move freely, when wanted, is an essential activity for healthy living. Visually impaired and completely blinded persons encounter many disadvantages in their day-To-day activities, including performing work-related tasks. They are at risk of mobility losses, illness, debility, social isolation, and premature mortality. A novel wearable device and computing platform called VIS4ION is reducing the disadvantage gaps and raising living standards for the visually challenged. It provides personal mobility navigational services that serves as a customizable, human-in-The-loop, sensing-To-feedback platform to deliver functional assistance. The platform is configured as a wearable that provides on-board microcomputers, human-machine interfaces, and sensory augmentation. Mobile edge computing enhances functionality as more services are unleashed with the computational gains. The meta-level goal is to support spatial cognition, personal freedom, and activities, and to promoting health and wellbeing. VIS4ION can be conceptualized as the dovetailing of two thrusts: An on-person navigational and computing device and a multimodal functional aid providing microservices through the cloud. The device has on-board wireless capabilities connected through Wi-Fi or 4/5G. The cloud-based microservices reduce hardware and power requirements while allowing existing and new services to be enhanced and added such as loading new map and real-Time communication via haptic or audio signals. This technology can be made available and affordable in the economies of transition countries.
