TEHRAN: Iranian researcher Ebrahim Khaninzadeh has invented an auditory system that helps people who are blind to recognize banknotes and assess the value of the money.
People who are blind have always been in trouble using ATMs or other automatic bank services, but the new system can resolve their problems, said Khaninzadeh.
Using the new system, people who are blind will be able to assess their money value and amount of banknotes, he added.
Khaninzadeh’s design simulates human fingers’ joint matrix and operates by utilizing the sensors applied in the thumb.
All electronic systems can be easily controlled by finger joints that allow people who are blind to be informed through an auditory command.
Khaninzadeh has been awarded in several international competitions in Switzerland, South Korea, Germany and Romania for his designs and inventions.
