Navigation Aid for Visually Impaired


system.png NAVI is a navigation system for blind and visually impaired users. The Main Aspects of the project are

User Interface

The system will be used by people who can't see or read the ouput given on a screen. Therefore we must provide feedback and ouput in acustic and tactile mode. The input must be designed in a way that the user knows also without seing something where in the menus he is and how he can get where he wants.

Data filtering

During the navigation process a lot of events occur where the system has some informational output for the user. Through data filtering we want to guess which information the user wants to know and which information isn't of interest.

General Overview of Members and Papers
