The “Smart Touch” project of Barış Arslan, Ayberk Zeray, Sinan Talebi, all students of IUE Department of Software Engineering, under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Yaşar Güneri Şahin, Acting Dean of IUE Faculty of Engineering and Computer Sciences, allows the visually impaired to go wherever they want with the help of an application installed in their walking canes. Prof. Dr. Şahin gave information about the project and he said that the visually impaired would be able to use their canes easily indoors and outdoors with the software the students developed. He said, "Such systems are already being used, however, our software is easily applied to the canes with a small gadget, thus making it more affordable. The map of a location can be installed to the mobile phone. Invisible tags are placed on specific spots in a location. The individual announces the destination, and reaches it with the help of verbal instructions."
Prof. Dr. Şahin stated that installation of the system in the buildings was very cost efficient, and that the visually impaired individuals would get the application installed on their existing canes easily for a cheaper price.
