Navigation Project for Independent living

A project that provides a blind man living alone the ability to perform a household chore unassisted 

Designer: Daniel Volz 

Abstract

            The Navigational aid for independent living is designed to provide a blind person, with permanent spatial reference points by using sound.  The Client would like to take out his own trash.  Cars frequently park between his apartment door and the dumpster preventing him from making a direct route to the trash receptacle.  This often causes him to lose his perspective as to which direction he was traveling. This project involves a system which will direct him to the dumpster from his apartment, and guide him back to his door without assistance.  The system consists of one handheld transmitter and two external receivers.
