Abstract

ENHANCING THE BLIND PATH AT A LARGE PUBLIC UNIVERSITY BY USING BLUETOOTH TECHNOLOGY

Dr. Wajdi Wazzan*

ABSTRACT

The present study is geared toward documenting and imperially evaluating and improving usefulness of the newly constructed tactile paving path at King Abdulaziz University (KAU), Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. KAU is one of the oldest and largest government funded universities in Saudi; with more than 80,000 enrolled students, among them 200 students with vision impairments, the majority of them are blind. KAU has installed tactile paving to provide independence and freedom of movement around its campus for the visually impairedstudents. After using the path for few months, the Center for Students with Special Needs (CSSN) has realized a good level of students’ satisfaction using the path, thus would like to further enhance the effectiveness of the path, by adding Bluetooth technology, so users can hear voice guidance during their commute around campus. This research was aimed at empirically evaluating the effectiveness of adding Bluetooth technology to the tactile path. This research discusses the practical implication and lessons learned from adding Bluetooth technology to aid visually impaired students to move safely and independently around campus.
