Rangeit TactileBelt Icon


Development of a stand-alone wearable device for obstacle recognition and indoor navigation for the blind.

Tactile feedback has been recognised as important modality for conveying spatial information for blind and visually impaired people. The Range-IT system will allow visually impaired people more independence by increasing mobility, and with that social participation.
