Liam Rishi Sydney Blind Maze Navigation using 2-DOF Haptic Joystick

The domain of haptics has immense potential as a technology to assist visually-impaired individuals with their navigation of the physical world. In this project, we sought to develop a 2-DOF haptic joystick to provide force-feedback to a user as she attempts to navigate a maze - with no visual feedback whatsoever. The proof of concept we show here takes a given maze, and renders it as a 2D navigable virtual ...
