Development of a guide robot to assist the blind with mobility and environmental awareness.

The primary objective of this research is to build a guide robot that is sufficiently flexible to permit the development and demonstration of a wide range of empowering algorithms. Algorithms to be considered could include obstacle detection and avoidance, environment mapping, thermal imaging, navigation, path planning, person and tracking, etc. This will allow the researcher to achieve the main goal of this device, which is to increase physical activity and independence for the visually impaired, through situational awareness.
