Blind and elderly persons often require support from a caretaker to move around for day-to-day tasks. Such persons can use assistive devices such as walkers to move around independently. For indoor environments, a camera-based system mounted on an assistive walker can help in automatic following of pre-defined paths. Such indoor paths can be learned visually during training and followed by the walker. If the walker strays away from the pre-defined path, then corrective navigation input can be… CONTINUE READING
