New Positioning Approach for visually impaired People in urban Areas

Short Description

The proposed project POScity aims at the development of new algorithms for the positioning component of a pedestrian navigation system for visually impaired or blind people. 

The consortium plans to investigate new approaches based on the GNSS single point positioning technique PPP (Precise Point Positioning) and a Particle filter including a navigable map. The navigable maps used in this project will contain special information relevant to visually impaired pedestrians.
