for Special Needs
Funded by Innovate UK and in partnership with WeWalk Limited, the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB), and Imperial College London, Astraterra developed a new indoor positioning, navigation, and wayfinding system. A project that depicts how technology can serve the visually impaired to gain more independence and autonomy
A key feature of this system is a new empirically derived method based, for the computation of protection level for multi-sensor positioning and navigation incorporating Bluetooth and Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs). Astraterra with Imperial College, together with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) developed the cane into a smarter version using GPS sensors, integrity monitoring, and other safety features.
