Robotics has become a major part of our day to day life, it has enabled us not only to speed up industrial processes, but solve mobility and transportation issues for travelers with vision impairment and others. In recent years, researchers have made significant strides in applying advanced technologies in computer vision, robotics and artificial intelligence to improve mobility and navigation of travelers with vision impairment. SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) combined with other event horizon approaches have led to new situational awareness for navigation both indoors and outdoors. This session will explore the opportunities associated with advances in sensing and vision-free interfaces and robotic technology for route planning and guidance. It will bring different experts, technologists & perspectives from the USDOT, other agencies, academia and private sector to further discuss this emerging trend, and to look for ways to collaboratively work to further this research.
