4 Apr A Blind Navigation System Using RFID for Indoor Environments However, location information for indoor environments is still very limited as. In recent years, several approaches have been made to create systems that allow seamless tracking and navigation both in indoor and outdoor environments . We propose an RFID-based system for navigation in a building for blind people or visually impaired. The system relies on the location information on the tag.

Procedia Boind Science Volume 27, Pages However, location information for indoor environments is still very limited. Published by Elsevier B. The tag stores location information and gives it to any reader that is within a proximity range which can be up to 10—15 meters for UHF RFID systems.

The navigation device communicates with the routing server using GPRS networks. Several techniques are proposed to get location information in buildings such as using a radio signal triangulation, a radio signal beacon emitter, or signal fingerprinting.
Several technologies have been proposed to make navigation inside of buildings possible. Cookies are used by this site. Blind navigation system using RFID for indoor environments. In this article we propose a navigation system that uses RFID as the main technology to guide people with visual impairment in unfamiliar environments, both indoor and outdoor, complementing the traditional white cane and providing information about the user’s geographical context.

In the case of outside environments, some hybrid systems have been proposed that use GPS as main information source and RFID for corrections and location error minimization. Advantage of these Systems: A location and tracking system becomes very important to our future world of pervasive computing, where information is all around us.

We found that there are some delay problems in the devices which are the communication delay due to the cold start cycle of a GPRS blind navigation system using rfid for indoor environments and the voice delay due to the file transfer delay from a MMC module.
Since the public use of GPS satellite is allowed, several state-of-the-art devices become part of our life, e. Download full text in PDF Download. Due to its passive communication circuit, RFID tags can be embedded almost anywhere without an energy source.
We build a prototype based on our design and show some results.
