  • First i would Like to say that the Featured Project is a great idea and that more research needs to be done in this field. The "smart Cane" project posted by #bdwyer is near identical in functionality to the featured project with exception to RFID and user outputs. Both are great attempts at increasing the mobility of visually impaired people. I also like the "D.O.G." system linked below. Here is my teams revision of the 2009 "Smart Cane" called the "Smart Robot"
    PDF Warning
    Our systems primary focus is on navigating a user to and from dorms on campus to classes and the library. We found during our research that too much sensor error occurred while walking with with sensors mounted to the user. That is why we developed a robotic platform for our device. anyways...glad to see continued research and development in this field. keep up the good work!!

  • "Imagine if Chuck Norris roundhouse kicked a cloned Chuck Norris, what would happen?"
