Walking Support System for Visually Impaired People Using Mobile Computer and Haptic Technology

Currently, a white cane or a guide dog is used for visually impaired people to walk as they do not have sufficient functions to support walking by themselves. In this study, we propose a walking support system that is safer and more comfortable than conventional systems by using a mobile computer to process information necessary for guiding the user using sensing and image processing technologies and by transmitting information about walking through the sense of touch.
