Navigation in eight cardinal directions with pseudo-attraction force for the visually impaired


We have proposed a haptic direction indicator that will help visually impaired pedestrians to travel a path and avoid hazards areas intuitively and safely by means of force-based navigation. The haptic direction indicator uses the pseudo-attraction force technique, which generates a pulling or pushing force in portable or mobile devices by exploiting the… (More)
