A Navigation and Object-Location System to Assist Blind and Low-Vision Individuals in Indoor Environments
This project demonstrates the technical merit, feasibility, and cost-effectiveness of combining ground-breaking Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology with an innovative approach and state of-the-art software to deliver a system capable of removing barriers in vocational settings. This system assists individuals with disabilities to orient themselves and safely navigate in vocational environments. The system also is designed to assist individuals in finding and identifying items and objects within their environment. Specific project objectives include: (1) determining end user requirements, (2) developing a proof-of-concept prototype of the system, and (3) evaluating the utility of the prototype with actual individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The system is also designed to assist individuals in finding and identifying items and objects.
