dc.description.abstract In this paper, NavTech Inc. presents a new approach to assist the visually impaired navigate a university campus. The key concept is the use of a compass the user can feel which guides them in the desired direction, based on data received from the integrated hardware and software. The design consists of a GPS receiver, a hardware-software system, a rotational thumb guide, and a Braille display. This design was simulated and the results show a significant improvement in the mobility of a visually impaired person. en
