Project description
The project develops a non-visual augmented reality tool that allows visually impaired children and youth to practice their ability to navigate in their environment in an entertaining way. The purpose is to at the same time create a  sense of security in trying out new, unknown paths and train to navigate the same path so that eventually, the tool is not needed. The double objectives have lead to a design of a game where you get awarded for using the s tool as little as possible.
