Virtually Enhaced Senses (VES)

The Virtually Enhanced Senses system is a novel and highly configurable wireless sensor-actuator network conceived as a development and test-bench platform of navigation systems adapted for blind and visually impaired people. It allows to immerse its users into ‘walkable’ purely virtual or mixed environments with simulated sensors and validate navigation system designs prior to prototype development.

Herein, we will publish the source code as well as test results of end-user mobility and orientation performance with the simulated systems.
