Abstract

Navigation device for the blind people focus on travelling from one location to another. They are avail with navigation stick which provides obstacle detection. The other novel features of the navigation stick are staircase detection and no formal distance scaling scheme. It also provides information about the floor status. It consists of low power embedded system with ultrasonic sensor and safety indicators. While in navigation mode the stick reaches the destination by avoiding obstacles using ultrasonic and infrared sensor inputs. This project investigated the suitability of a user centred client server approach for the development of a talking GPS system intended to fill a niche for outdoor way-finding. The work resulted in a working prototype proof-of-concept system that uses a speech-recognition speech-synthesis interface. The prototype solution includes a custom web application which accesses the Google maps API. The system is intended to be scalable and extensible with additional features such as sensors for obstacle avoidance and access to web-based information such as weather, train or bus timetable information. The client server approach was found to be suitable for the development of this type of application.
