Our story

Our team is on a mission to completely change the landscape of assistive technologies for visual impairment. We are building the world's first AI copilot for the blind, and we need the best team to get there.
Autonomous vehicles are nearly there. Yet, no comparable device allows a pedestrian to walk down a sidewalk. That's why we've built biped.ai, the world’s first AI copilot for blind and visually impaired people. The device is worn as a harness, analyses the surroundings in real-time, and guides the user with sounds. We started this project in the summer of 2020, at a hackathon. Since then, we started building our dream team, talked to multiple end-users, tested the device with >200 beta-tester, and gained close to 10 key partners in Europe and in the US. As we are closing our seed round, we're expanding our team quickly.
