The task of navigating through new spaces can often be challenging for People with Visual Disabilities until they get acquainted with the pathways and key landmarks. This applies to both indoor and outdoor spaces. When it comes to outdoor spaces, the availability of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) means that there are plenty of solutions available that aid everyone in navigating streets, sidewalks and over ground public transportation systems. When it comes to indoor spaces, where satellite signals required to operate GPS are not available, blind people face tremendous challenges in finding way finding systems. Because indoor way finding systems are far and few in between, the use of robots to provide this functionality is a viable option as well.
