GUIDING BLIND PEDESTRIANS WITH A PERSONAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM

In this paper, the authors present an approach to personal navigation systems that supplements existing aids and eliminates the need for sighted guides. Using a guidance or control method, the desired trajectory is compared with the user's intended trajectory and is then equalized. The primary inputs are the current position and orientation of the user from a number of sensors. The output is guidance via speech instructions. A processor is used to relate the inputs and outputs in an automated guidance process.
