Remote Assistance System for the Visually Impaired

Using a small device equipped with a camera and GPS a blind person can receive assistance from a remote operator sitting at a computer.

Sonified Stereovision Travel Aid for Local Navigation

Using wearable stereovision goggles and sophisticated computer algorithms 3D scenes are represented by auditory codes allowing a blind user to “hear obstacles”.

Find more

Mobile Application for the Blind

Specialized \\\\\\\"Asystent\\\\\\\" software package for mobile phones includes an auditory menu interface, customizable readability, color recognition and navigation programs.

GPS Navigation for the Blind Using a Mobile Phone

Access to a P.O.I. database allows blind travelers to obtain GPS travel directions to any address, nearby points of interest or to plot and follow custom paths.

Find more

Radio Beacons for Local Navigation

A positioning system for short-range outdoor or indoor use using radio markers placed in the environment. A blind user can identify and find out the distance to the nearest marker.

Find more

Real Time Tracking of Public Transport Vehicles

Using specialized mobile phone software, blind persons can obtain access not only to up-to-date bus and tram schedules, but also accurate estimates of arrival times or delays.

Find more

Haptic Imaging

The haptic presentation system was built in order to enable the blind people a touching interaction with 3D real objects created in virtual reality.

A system enabling independent travel

A system enabling independent travel and access to urban infrastructure for the blind and visually impaired: integration of wireless technologies with global and local navigation systems.   Worldwide, there are 314 million of visually impaired and 45 million of them are blind. According to EU reports for every 1000 Europeans 4 are blind or visually impaired. Vision loss is the most serious sensory disability that causes approx. 90% depravation of entire multi sense perception for a human. In spite of a long lasting research record independent mobility and orientation aids for the blind still await for a ground-breaking methodology and technology that would effectively support visually impaired individuals with safe and effective travel in unknown environments. No single solution of electronic travel aids has gained a wider acceptance within the blind community. The low cost...
