|Valentina Di Mattia
The research work concerns the development of an electromagnetic device able to detect a huge variety of potentially dangerous obstacles, and to give information about their position, distance and shape to visually impaired users in order to increase their confidence in walking. The device should be small and easy to use so as to be well-integrated with the existing technologies.
