_Navigation for visually impaired people
The BRAINOVI is a Braille navigation map that uses a combination of verbal instructions and touch display, to help a blind person travel alone. All he needs to do is ‘speak’ his destination into the device and wait for a 3-D map to pop-up, giving him a ‘feel’ of his route. Corresponding verbal directions are relayed to the user via a Bluetooth earpiece, thus guiding him to his destination. The overall effect is to give the user a sense of freedom while traveling alone, without depending upon a companion.
