AI-assistive Envision Glasses for the Blind and Visually Impaired

Envision Glasses integrate our proprietary AI-assistive software with high quality, lightweight, enterprise-grade Google Glass to offer the most robust and cost-effective vision aid technology solution on the market today.

Envision, the award-winning AI-assistive technology company that empowers blind and visually impaired people with greater independence and access to the visual information around them, today announced the official launch of Envision Glasses, the most advanced, AI-powered, assistive glasses available on the market. Available for purchase online via the Envision website or authorized resellers Florida Reading and Vision Technology (US), Sight and Sound Technology (UK), and Babbage (Netherlands), the Envision Glasses are available with a choice of two different frame types and retail for $3500, £2695 and €2999 (excluding tax), respectively. View a short video of how Envision works here.

The launch of Envision Glasses is the next step in Envision’s evolution and builds off of the success of the company’s popular, AI-assistive iOS and Android smartphone app, which was named Best Accessibility App at the 2019 Google Play Awards and a Hall of Fame Award Winner by AppleVis, which showcases the best accessible iOS apps.

“Envision was born from our desire to empower blind and visually impaired people with greater independence and access to the visual world, including things many of us take for granted, like reading text from a book, newspaper, magazine, computer, tablet or smartphone screen, perusing a product label, opening and reading a handwritten card or letter from a loved one, or running a business meeting without the need for assistance,” said Karthik Mahadevan, CEO and co-founder of Envision. “Envision Glasses integrate our proprietary AI-assistive software with high quality, lightweight, enterprise-grade Google Glass to offer the most robust and cost-effective vision aid technology solution on the market today.”

How Envision Glasses Work.

Envision’s software uses artificial intelligence to extract information from images and then speaks the images out loud so the user has a greater understanding of the environment around him or her. Blind and low-vision users can ‘see’ to read documents at home or work, view labels while shopping, easily recognize their friends, find personal belongings at home, use public transport, video call anyone in real time, and more.

Envision Glasses combine an abundance of ‘Read, Find, Identify and Call’ functionality and exclusive features with the fastest, most accurate OCR (Optical Character Recognition) available to truly help users ‘see’ the world around them through the spoken word. Envision’s AI-assistive software is capable of recognizing text and scripts in more than 60 languages, providing the largest language bank available on the market. Envision’s Batch Scan functionality also allows users to scan more than one document at a time, and all text can easily be exported to the Envision app’s library.

Additional Features and Tech Specifications:

● Real-time, Instant Text: Read short pieces of text, public transportation information, i.e., bus, train, tram or subway schedules, street signs, food labels, etc. Works with a live video feed, so users can scan around and their Envision Glasses will continue to speak out whatever text is in front of them

● Document Text and Handwritten Text: Read dense pieces of text like letters, books or magazines. Snap a picture of any of these types of text with Envision Glasses, and they will present the content in an easy, accessible and explorable way. There is also an option to export the raw text into the Envision app, where it can then be copied, exported in various formats, e.g., PDF, Word, .txt or .epub file or directly shared via an external application, e.g., email, notes, WhatsApp, etc. Included within the Document Text itself, Envision intelligently identifies and recognizes handwritten text, enabling the user to easily read greeting cards, post-it notes, etc.

● Video Call: Allows the user to make a video call from within the Envision Glasses to a friend or a family member who has the Envision Ally app, enabling them to see a direct video feed from the Glasses and assist the user in the event they need help. Users can also opt to share additional information such as their current location on a map

● Describe Scene: Take a picture and the AI will describe what’s in the image to help the user gain a general sense of what is around them. Images can also be saved, making it a great way to take photographs

● Detect Colors: A simple but useful feature. Once activated, the Envision Glasses will speak out the dominant colors in front of them — very useful when you need to pick out the right outfit or separate the laundry wash loads, i.e., whites from the darks

● Find Person: Activate this feature to scan around your environment and Envision will emit a mild beep every time it sees a person in frame. Users can also teach Envision the faces of their friends and family, so when their faces come in the frame, their names will be spoken to the user

● Find Objects: Select from a list of objects and scan your environment. The Envision glasses will beep whenever the object being searched for is in the frame. Great for finding the remote control on the couch or house keys you’ve accidentally misplaced

● Explore: This feature enables Envision to consistently speak out the objects and people it detects around the user, which is handy to familiarize yourself at a new place or just a fun activity when out for a walk to know what’s around

● Integration with Other Apps: Only Envision offers the ability to integrate with other apps that have complementary functionality, i.e., navigation, currency detection, etc.

● iOS and Android Compatibility: iOS 12.0 or higher with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch; Android 5.0 or higher

● Software Updates: Glasses are continuously updated with new features and functionalities

● Two lightweight, comfortable frame sizes available:

○    Standard, Titanium Frame: lightweight minimal frame with no lenses

○    Smith Optics Frame: A designer spectacle frame with zero-power lenses that can be replaced with custom prescription lenses

● Weight: Less than 2 ounces / 50 grams

● Camera: 8-MP camera with a wide field-of-view that captures every detail

● Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-Enabled: Always-on connectivity

● Battery: Provides 5 – 6 hours charge with regular usage. USB-C supported for rapid charging

● Power-Saving Features: ‘On-head’ detection sensor and ‘Eye-on’ screen sensor.

● Audio: Directional Mono Speaker, USB audio and Bluetooth Audio

“The overwhelming volume of positive reviews and feedback we’ve received from beta testers and customers who pre-ordered during our early bird program is equal parts validating and heartwarming,” added Envision co-founder, Karthik Kannan. “Customer comments like ‘this kind of freedom is invaluable, especially when you’re outside and have a cane or a guide dog in a hand already’ or “this is a game-changer for me and my independence” are what motivates and drives the entire Envision team. We’re delighted to bring Envision Glasses to market and empower blind and visually impaired people worldwide with greater independence and a hands-free, easy way to ‘see’ the world around them through the spoken word.”

Secure, Easy, and Affordable TV Video Calling with Zoom Integration


Secure video calling on your TV that puts your privacy first. The Onscreen Spark also has Zoom integration, so that you can chat with your loved ones at home using your largest screen, your TV.

The Best Video Calls On Your TV. Full HD quality video, with up to 1080p resolution, that is crisp and clear to make you feel like you’re right next to each other.

“This will be a great gift for my wife who hasn’t seen her mother in over 9 months due to COVID-19. She now does FaceTime on her iPhone. This will be a great upgrade to that experience,” said one early ONSCREEN customer.

ONSCREEN Inc., announces the upcoming launch of the Spark — a TV video calling device that is easy to install, completely secure, and affordable. The new device addresses the need for higher quality video calling experiences for families, safe from privacy concerns, and is the most affordable TV video calling product on the market. With high quality 1080p video, HD audio from multiple embedded microphones, Zoom meeting integration, and easy setup, the device opens the video calling market to the living room. ONSCREEN will begin shipping the Spark devices in the 2nd week of December, just in time for the holidays.

There’s no denying that COVID-19 has moved many of our family interactions to video calls and Zoom meetings, including this year’s holiday gatherings. However, trying to video call using small devices can be frustrating, uncomfortable, and ultimately unsatisfying. The ONSCREEN Spark provides a completely new medium on which to experience these virtual family gatherings, your HD TV.

“This will be a great gift for my wife who hasn’t seen her mother in over 9 months due to COVID-19. She now does FaceTime on her iPhone. This will be a great upgrade to that experience,” said one early ONSCREEN customer.

The product experience has been designed for families of all ages, with minimal technology experience required. Setting up the product involves just a few simple steps: connect the camera to the TV, download the ONSCREEN app, and set up a new account. Once the account is created using the app, the new owner simply scans a newly generated QR code to the camera, and the device and app are synced. The device owner can now place calls to their phone contacts, receive calls, or join Zoom meetings. No Spark device is required to receive calls from a Spark owner, only the free ONSCREEN app.

“We know that ease of use, privacy, and security are our customers’ main concerns when trying to use video calling experiences to connect their families. We’ve built a product that addresses those concerns and provides a truly immersive, high quality experience, on the big screen TV,” states Andrew Blue, co-founder of ONSCREEN, Inc.

The ONSCREEN Spark and companion iOS and Android app have been designed with security and privacy as a first priority. ONSCREEN Inc., is not a social network or using an advertising supported business model, so customer data is never transacted for revenue. The hardware and software provides industry-leading audio and video encryption, end-to-end encryption for ONSCREEN 1:1 and group calls. Zoom standard encryption is also integrated so that you can enjoy Zoom on your TV with peace of mind. Finally, the camera offers a sliding privacy cover for maximum customer confidence.

The retail price of the ONSCREEN Spark will start at $99.99 — the best value for TV video calling technology to-date. The company will also charge a $2.99 monthly subscription for access to their secure 1:1 and group video calling service through their secure network, as well as continuous upgrades that add new features, such as games, filters, and more. However, for the Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale, the company is lowering the retail price to just $79.99, and giving early customers Free Lifetime Service to the ONSCREEN secure network.

Welcoming C-V2X in the United States after FCC’s ruling


This is a significant milestone for the industry, and we believe that with the uncertainty removed from the industry, deployments will speed up allowing V2X technology to take off.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) fundamentally changed the vehicle communications (C-ITS) market in the US by restructuring the 5.9 GHz band. The industry must go forward on a narrowed spectrum with Cellular V2X or C-V2X technology instead of the widely used Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC). The changes announced pave the way for progress, eliminating the uncertainty caused by competing technologies.

Commsignia has always been supporting both C-V2X and DSRC and is well prepared to help the US market go down this newly designated path. Road operators and cities can focus on their primary missions, saving lives and making transportation more efficient, while we at Commsignia deliver the best technologies and services needed to achieve these goals.

For those who have DSRC systems up and running we’re ensuring a smooth transition to C-V2X. Those who use our dual-mode equipment are in a unique position to solve this problem with a mere software upgrade at no significant cost. Our C-V2X offer includes ITS-RS4-M ver:C roadside units (RSU) for cities and road operators and ITS-OB4-M ver:C onboard units (OBU) for fleets to deploy V2X services in the US.

We’re participating in setting up the C-V2X certification processes with OmniAir to rigorously test our devices because standardization and certification is in our corporate DNA.

“This is a significant milestone for the industry, and we believe that with the uncertainty removed from the industry, deployments will speed up allowing V2X technology to take off” – said Laszlo Virag, CTO of Commsignia. “However with this change various customers are facing the need to switch from their existing devices to C-V2X. For this we provide assistance and specialized solutions, to make sure this transition period is a smooth experience for all involved: decisionmakers, operators, and those using the technology day by day.”

Join our webinar!

If you already have C-ITS infrastructure or want to build one, we invite you to join our webinar where we deep dive in FCC’s ruling and the future of this market. Laszlo Virag will talk about the impacts of FCC’s decision and how Commsignia supports building C-V2X infrastructure or upgrading an existing one.

For details, check out commsignia.com/spectrumwebinar

Details of FCC’s November 18, 2020 decision:

The FCC allocated 45 MHz of the 5,9 GHz band to unlicensed devices, vehicle communication remained on the upper 30 MHz. C-ITS users have to vacate this lower part of the band within one year of the effective date of the First Report and Order, and leave behind DSRC within 2 years in the remaining band designated to C-ITS.

About Commsignia:

Commsignia is the market’s most dynamic V2X company thanks to its cutting-edge technology and market ready portfolio. Commsignia specializes in Connected Car / V2X “Safer on the Road” software and hardware products compatible with IEEE 802.11p standards, DSRC and Cellular V2X (C-V2X) / 5G technologies.

Noodoe Partnerships Fuel Record 2020 Growth, EV Station Installs


Noodoe CEO Jennifer Chang

There’s an urgency to our work, as we expect the total installed base of charging points to increase exponentially between now and 2024 in North America

Noodoe, a global leader in EV charging technology, has recently signed Audi Taiwan, Morgner Power Group and EVCS to partnership agreements, facilitating growth of EV station installs across North America, including the U.S. and Canada. The sharing of technology and knowledge base has created record growth for Noodoe in 2020, while helping to electrify the burgeoning EV market across the entire continent.

“There’s a reason great companies like Audi are partnering with Noodoe, and there’s a reason we continue to seek new partners,” says Noodoe CEO Jennifer Chang. “There’s an urgency to our work, as we expect the total installed base of charging points to increase exponentially between now and 2024 in North America, from 700,000 to 2.4 million locations. To handle demand for EV charging hardware and software, we must work together to improve EV connectivity penetration rate, which currently stands at around 30 percent of what is needed for ubiquitous service.”

Chang believes the feature attraction of Noodoe is their future-proof operating system, known in the industry as Noodoe EV OS. “Owners looking to get into EV charging are requiring operating efficiency,” says Chang. “By automating the business operation, Noodoe EV OS enables the owner/operator to achieve the lowest possible operating cost. Controlling and running all EV charging stations, Noodoe EV OS fully automates everything – 24/7 charging service delivery, automatic peak-hour price adjustment, automatic transaction billing, automatic payment processing, automatic bank transfer, automatic infrastructure diagnostics, and intelligent energy management. It’s so automated that the operator can sit back and monitor revenue being continuously generated.”

Despite COVID-19 related supply chain disruptions, the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) annual Global EV Outlook reports that the worldwide electric vehicle fleet continues to significantly expand in 2020.

“Everyone Noodoe partners with has something in common; the commitment to create a cleaner environment for all, protect the planet and inspire smart economic growth,” says Chang. “With all the scientific evidence pointing to climate change, I’m more convinced than ever that consumers will make the shift to electric vehicles.”
