NAVIG project (Navigation Assistée par VIsion embarquée et GNSS)

Status : project over.

Description : NAVIG is a multidisciplinary and innovative project, with both fundamental and applied aspects, which have as their objective to augment the autonomy of low vision individuals in their basic daily actions the most problematic: navigation (arrive at a destination and avoiding obstacles) and objects localization. NAVIG follows a method of participatory design, and aims to permit low vision individuals to move about towards a desired destination in a sure and precise manner, without interfering with the normal behavior or mobility.

Kintouch: a tool for tracking visually impaired people’s finger movements

How do visually impaired people explore tactile images? Little is known about this. Yet, understanding this question would help us design interactive interfaces for visually impaired users that better satisfy their needs. The study of haptic exploration strategies in psychology usually relies on video observations, which are difficult and time-consuming. We introduce Kintouch, a prototype that tracks finger movements by integrating data from the Microsoft Kinect camera and a multi-touch display. It registers location and timing of hand and digit movements and can thus help analyzing haptic exploration strategies. Results of preliminary studies show that this approach is promising.
