Wearable Device Helps Vision Impaired Avoid Collision
This video shows a pilot testing of a portable collision device developed for visually impaired. A normally sighted person was wearing a goggle with a small opening, which gave him only 10-deg field of view. A warning device in his pocket gave auditory warnings when imminent collision risk was detected.
This video demonstrates an end-user prototype of collision warning device we developed for visually impaired and blind people.
