The line following guide for the Blind or Visually Impaired

Application for the guidePOD

The lineguidePOD is one of the practical applications for the guidePOD.

The system is fabricated from off the shelf components including 80/20 extrusions and a modular standard a standard guidePOD described in an earlier blog.

It can be used around the home, office, library, grocery strore, mall or community where line have been painted or marked to have a more user friendly atmosphere for the blind or visually impaired.

The system will warn the user when  they are straying away from the line or if there is some obstacle like a lamp post.
