Abstract

One of the most important problems faced by blind and partially sighted people when they travel is the inability to cross the street safely. The existing sound signalling systems are not provided with the facility enabling the impaired person to recognize the right direction when crossing the street. Hence, a new solution using the digital sound synthesis of the signal based on the space localization phenomena is presented and discussed
