Human-Robot Interaction in a Robotic Guide for the Visually Impaired

Vladimir Kulyukin, Chaitanya Gharpure, and Nathan De Graw

We present an assisted indoor navigation system for the visually impaired. The system consists of a mobile robotic guide and small sensors embedded in the environment. We describe the hardware and software components of the system and discuss several aspects of human-robot interaction that we observed in the initial stages of a pilot study with several visually impaired participants.
