dc.description.abstract In this paper we present Panoptes, a new device for collecting and relating spatial data through an auditory interface. The main objective of this device is to make navigation easier for the visually impaired. The design consists of a handheld device containing an ultrasonic sensor, a gyroscope, a signal processing chip and a power source. Various elements of the design were simulated and the results show that the device, in concert with the natural capabilities of the human brain, allowed the user to process and use the information to navigate. en
