ClearPath Indoor Robotic Guide for the Visually ChallengedHere is an "Opportunity to Learn Outside Of Class". This NOT required, but might be fun and educational. This is an invitation to a local meetup happening in Meno Park on Dec 19.ClearPath Indoor Robotic Guide for the Visually Challenged If you are in the Silicon Valley area Dec 19, maybe plan on going to this talk and planning session. Extra Credit for my Mechatronics Students...
The ClearPath project's goal is to create a proof of concept robotic platform intended to guide a visually impaired person indoors. Ideally, a sensor-rich, smart environment would assist the guide robot's planning and run-time navigation while the robot guides the blind user through the building. The first project phase in this effort is to demonstrate the potential of indoor guidance for the blind.
