Automated Tour Guide Prototype

Our Project

Updated 02/16/17

Our current project is ATG, or The Automated Tour Guide. We are working to develop a fully functional device for new students, faculty members or guests of the University with visual impairments the ability to navigate around campus. This project was started in 2009 and has come a long way with a functional prototype. The DRC is a Purdue University program that provides academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and services for students with temporary or permanent disabilities. Their goal is to allow students with these conditions, equal access to course activities and materials. Our team's mission is to facilitate the giving of assistance to students with special needs or disabilities, through our cooperation with the Student Success Program.
