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 ...

Arduino Joystick Mouse Control Code

Using the Mouse library, you can controls a computer's onscreen cursor with an Arduino Leonardo, Micro, or Due. This particular example uses a pushbutton to turn on and off mouse control with a joystick. Cursor movement from the Arduino is always relative. So every time the analog input is read, the cursor's position is updated relative to it's current position. Two analog inputs ranging from 0 to 1023 are ...
