Exploring the Use of Wearables to develop Assistive Technology for Visually Impaired People
This thesis explores the usage of two prominent wearable devices to develop assistive technology for users who are visually impaired. Specifically, the work in this thesis aims at improving the quality of life of users who ...
Mixed Reality Indoor Navigation system for the Visually Impaired
Walking is an essential means of transportation for humans. While walking to a destination, navigation through the environment requires prior knowledge of its surroundings. Different senses are used to acquire surrounding ...
Improving Controllers for Formations and Deconfliction among Non-holonomic Vehicles
The first contribution of this work corresponds to a computationally efficient geometric method for simulating formations of systems with non-holonomic motion constraints inspired by solutions in robotics. The geometric ...
Integrating Minimalistic Localization and Navigation for People with Visual Impairments
Indoor localization and navigation systems for individuals with visual impairments (VI) typically rely upon extensive augmentation of the physical space or expensive sensors; thus, few systems have been adopted. This work ...
