Sound maps to help visually impaired people find their way
Stand number: 11
The CASBLIP project focused on cognitive systems research. It aimed to develop devices capable of interpreting and managing real world information and transforming it into sounds to support the mobility of blind and visually impaired people. Thanks to this concept, blind people are able to perceive surrounding obstacles by sounds and can avoid them. The stand will present the prototype developed in the project which uses Infrared Laser technology. Visitors will also be able to test the EYE21 glasses which were developed in a spin off of the CASBLIP project, EYE2021.
