blindBike is a system that uses multiple sensors including a smartphone camera, gyroscope, gps sensors and a cadence sensor to assist in the process of bicycle driving and navigation for people with low vision. We propose that with the assistance of blindBike it may be possible for those with low vision to be mobile at a new level. However, blindBike can also be assistive to those with normal vision. Through the use of today’s smartphones, the blindBike app can affordably assist with navigation and Road Following. This work focuses on the road following and intersection assistance modules.
