A car for blind drivers?
The National Federation of the Blind, which is based in Baltimore, and Virginia Tech plan to test next year a car designed for driving by the blind, according to a Huffington Post article
The advocacy group for the blind has, for a few years now, issued a formal challenge (the NFB blind driving challenge) to encourage technological experimentation with blind-driving technologies..
From the HuffPost article:
The technology, called "nonvisual interfaces," uses sensors to let a blind driver maneuver a car based on information transmitted to him about his surroundings: whether another car or object is nearby, in front of him or in a neighboring lane.
