Blind Guider


Sidewalks that talk to blind pedestrians

Blind Guider is an orientation system for the visually impaired that uses Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to announce street names and directions as its users walk on city streets. When the orientation modules installed in guide tiles are touched by an RFID-equipped guide cane, the location-related information is emitted over earphones to provide users with audible directions.
