This paper explains the concept and reports tests of a remote guidance system for the blind. The system comprises two parts - a remote operator's terminal and a blind person's mobile terminal. The mobile terminal is a small electronic device which consists of a digital camera, GPS receiver and a headset. The two terminals are wirelessly connected via GSM and the Internet. The link transmits video from the blind traveller, GPS data and provides duplex audio communication between the terminals… CONTINUE READING
