NavCog Navigation iPhone App

Product Description

Product Description

NavCog is an iPhone app, created by Carnegie Mellon University Cognitive Assistance Laboratory, aimed specifically for the blind to help those people “explore” the world without vision. NavCog is opensourced as a part of Hulop project.

When in an unfamiliar place, people tend to use a walking navigation system on their device to compare the map location to the surrounding views. However, visually impaired people cannot check the map or the surrounding scenery to bridge the gap between the ground truth and the rough GPS location. NavCog aims for an improved high-accuracy walking navigation system that uses BLE beacons together with various kinds of sensors with a new localization algorithm for both indoors and outdoors.
