Abstract:
The demand for indoor navigational systems is increasing daily. The use of navigational systems is ranging from smart cities and robots to visually impaired people support to navigate safely. The GuideMe Project aims to provide guidance and security for people suffering from blindness, and in the time being, it is in the final development stage. This paper presents GuideMe Project goals GuideMe Project architecture and GuideMe final prototype. GuideMe Project architecture consists of the wearable device curried the user has, the anchors with which the wearable device works to determine the position of the user, the smartphone that is informed by the system for the route the user must follow and converts the message into audio information through the user’s headset. The headset in order to guide the user in indoor places and the local server who controls the protocols and the information, are the last parts of the architecture. It is clear that the system is quite complex, it consists of several entities and requires them to work together harmoniously to provide the prescribed functionality, in real-time. All the technologies developed to this final system, each of which has multiple sub-entities as mentioned, handle the required functionality that is the provision orientation of users who are located and moving indoors.
