Abstract
This project develops an indoor route following system using a novel indoor location technology. This technology allows a user who is blind to follow a path inside a building. Using this device, a visitor to a shopping mall can enter the building and follow a pre-recorded path to a specific store. The user can make his or her own path with the aid of a sighted person or download prerecorded paths that others have created for building interiors.
