dc.description.abstract In this paper we present a new system for indoor blind accessibility. The main idea is an intelligent cane which is capable of navigating a fully blind person through the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. The design consists of a modified white cane, containing RFID transponders which receive information from RFID tags in the hallways. The user wears a headset to give commands and receive information. A rumble feature in the cane is used to give the user directional feedback. The design's directional feedback software was simulated and the results show that the software is successful and will competently keep the user on the path to their specified location. en
