  1. 1. Improving roundabouts for cyclists and visually impaired

    University dissertation from Lunds tekniska högskola, instutionen för teknik och samhälle, trafik och väg

    Author : Lisa Sakshaug; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accessibility; safety; visually impaired; cyclist; roundabout;

    Abstract : Roundabouts are continuing to increase due to their high traffic safety, low delay times and their winning design. However, there are also problems related to roundabouts; the traffic safety for cyclists is unclear or even negative and there are reports of accessibility problems for people with visual impairment.

  2. 2. Design and Evaluation of 3D Multimodal Virtual Environments for Visually Impaired People

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Ying Ying Huang; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Multimodal interaction; 3D worlds; Haptics; Audio; Visually impaired users; Collaboration; Navigation; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Spatial information presented visually is not easily accessible to visually impairedusers. Current technologies, such as screen readers, cannot intuitively conveyspatial layout or structure. This lack of overview is an obstacle for a visuallyimpaired user, both when using the computer individually and when collaboratingwith other users. READ MORE

  3. 3. Servicescapes seen by visually impaired travellers : Time-geography approach to servicescape research

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Alma Raissova; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; servicescape; time-geography; constraints; tactics; blind; visually impaired persons; servicescape; tidsgeografi; begränsningar; taktik; blinda; synskadade;

    Abstract : Kunskapsluckor kvar i studien av servicescapes, eftersom befintlig forskning på servicescapes tenderar att ignorera stora framsteg i förståelsen av tid och rum som sociala fenomen. En aspekt som särskilt kräver ytterligare studier är hur nya begränsningar påverkar kundernas interaktioner med organiserade serviceplatser. READ MORE

  4. 4. Haptic Navigation Aids for the Visually Impaired

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Daniel Innala Ahlmark; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industriell elektronik; Industrial Electronics;

    Abstract : Assistive technologies have improved the situation in society for visually impaired individuals.The rapid development the last decades have made both work and education much more accessible. Despite this, moving about independently is still a major challenge, one that at worst can lead to isolation and a decreased quality of life. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design for all Senses. Accessible Spaces for Visually Impaired Citizens

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Marta Dischinger; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Arkitektur och bebyggelsevård; Architecture and architectural conservation and restoration; universal design; design methods; urban accessibility; visual impairments; spatial perception;

    Abstract : The central purpose of this study is to contribute to our knowledge of designing in a way that can be supported by the knowledge of the situation, and by the experience and expectations of those who are affected by design. In this case it means to enable us to find methods that can support the development of design actions to improve the accessibility of public open urban places for visually impaired persons, enhancing their perception and understanding of space, increasing their possibilities of orientating and taking independent decisions, and enabling them participate in the city life.
