It detects obstacles and suggests direction side.

StepsDetector is an application for people affected by blindness that detects obstacles or hollows (for example steps or the edge of platforms) and the direction towards which the greatest distance in space is present.

If your device is not equipped with multiple rear camera or TrueDepth distance sensor it will vibrate in the presence of color variations and the type of vibration will depend on the position of the variation, but the detection will be very unreliable.

StepsDetector analyzes large variations in distance that are associated with non-smooth surfaces (objects) with a sharper vibration if the detection seems to be an obstacle and softer for a hollow. In "find space" mode, the vibration is intense if the direction is far from the center of the frame and the type of vibration depends on the side where the direction with the most space is.

If you have a device without multiple rear cameras but with TrueDepth on the front camera, turn your iPhone with the screen facing the area to be analyzed.

To save battery, place your device vertically in mode 1 (for example in your pocket) to pause it and tap or position horizontally for a few moments to restart.
Shake your device to turn this automatic sleep feature on and off.

Swipe up or down to increase or decrease the sensitivity, right and left to turn sound mode on or off and tap in center to switch between modes.
The "find space" mode is only available for devices with multiple rear cameras.
