Visual Impairment and Mobility
• Approx. 285m visually impaired people worldwide
• Approx. 65% over 65
• In the UK, 46% have contact with someone from the
outside world less than once a week!
As the population ages …
• Approx. 50% would like to go out more often
• 29% feel they cannot go out unaccompanied
• Independence and consequent health problems caused by
– lack of exercise,
– poor access to health services and
– poor nutrition due to difficulties getting to shops.

Where do we go from here - technology and visually impaired people’s mobility

  • 1. Institute for Transport Studies FACULTY OF ENVIRONMENT Where do we go from here? Technology and visually impaired people’s mobility Bryan Matthews Institute for Transport Studies and Centre for Disability Studies University of Leeds 47th annual UTSG Conference, London 2015
  • 2. Institute for Transport Studies FACULTY OF ENVIRONMENT Visual Impairment and Mobility • Approx. 285m visually impaired people worldwide • Approx. 65% over 65 • In the UK, 46% have contact with someone from the outside world less than once a week! As the population ages … • Approx. 50% would like to go out more often • 29% feel they cannot go out unaccompanied • Independence and consequent health problems caused by – lack of exercise, – poor access to health services and – poor nutrition due to difficulties getting to shops.
  • 3. Institute for Transport Studies FACULTY OF ENVIRONMENT The Way Finding Report Can technology be the answer? • GPS and mapping technology • Augmented reality • Personal Positioning Systems • Triggered information (Beacons) • Electronic leadlines?
  • 4. Institute for Transport Studies FACULTY OF ENVIRONMENT Components of Wayfinding • Getting information and using it - R; • Orientation (knowing current location) - R&L; • Navigating (making route decisions) - R&L; • Mental mapping (using cues to predict the best next step) -L; and • Exit and entrance identification (locating and moving through accesspoints) - R; • Closure (detecting and arriving at the right place - L.
