Haptic Vision Substitution

The Haptic Vision Substitution Project involves a device that will assist the blind in “feeling” their surroundings. The device that is under research and development consists of a palm-sized vibrating pin array that will emulate the user’s visual feedback. This technology relies on the user’s ability to associate vibrating frequencies with a specific light intensity. So far, by utilizing SolidWorks and Wire EDMs, researchers on this project are creating prototypes of the pin array that will respond to various frequencies. Future goals include creating an array that vibrates in frequencies that are detectable and distinguishable by human touch.
