The Ford 'Feel The View' smart window has been developed as a new solution for the visually impaired to help them enjoy the landscape around them as they ride in a vehicle. The system works by taking a picture of the terrain and converting it into a grayscale image before adding different vibrations for all of the different shades. Blind passengers can then run their fingers along the screen to feel the surrounding area, while AI technology speaks to them with information about what they're seeing to better visualize the scene.

The Ford 'Feel The View' smart window identifies what can be done with advanced technology to make everyday experiences more accessible for those who are differently abled or impaired.
