Android Based Electronic Travel Aid System for Blind People

Abstract : Blindness is the condition of lacking visual perception due to physiological or neurological factors. Blind people do not have the full perception of the surrounding environment, though navigating, in an unknown environment or/and with obstacles on route, can be a very difficult task.  In this paper, an information mobile system is presented, that acts as an electronic travel aid, and can guide a blind person through a route, inform him about imminent obstacles in his path and help him orientate himself. The current prototype consists of a mobile phone, and the developed application.
