Over the last few years, Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology has gained popularity for use in assistive technology for individuals who are blind. Recently, RFID-based wearable assistive devices have been developed for individuals who are blind to assist with navigation or remote object perception. However, RFID-based assistive technology suffers from two major drawbacks: (1) information overload in environments with many tagged objects, and (2) usability issues in untagged… CONTINUE READING
