dc.description.abstractA common issue faced by people who are visually impaired is the difficulty of navigating and traveling through unfamiliar outdoor and indoor environments. The current state-of-the-art solutions to this problem consist of very expensive guide dogs and simple canes for obstacle detection. The team sought to develop a LIDAR-based navigation system with binaural auditory feedback that would allow the blind to navigate in unfamiliar environments and perform basic obstacle avoidance. Though basic auditory feedback relating to environmental obstacles was developed, further work is necessary to fine-tune the system and to determine the practicality of the device.
