SUAM Series By Nelson Alaya
Sistema Universal de Apoyo a la Movilidad Universal System to Support Mobility SUAM is a technological system that enables the blind or visually impaired to locate and navigate within various urban establishments (i.e., train stations, airports, malls, etc.) in an autonomous and secure manner. The system converts incoming signals from infrared emitters into audible messages, which are sent directly to a portable device carried by the user. The message sent to the device reports the name, commercial nature of the business and direction of the selected object.
The mobile device operates when the user presses a central button scanning the surrounding area for the closest infrared emitter signal. Emitters may be located in facilities such as bathrooms, offices and retail stores. Once the signal is received by the device, the corresponding audible message is activated in order to communicate the details of the location to the user.
The ergonomic curved design of the hand held device complements the anatomical nature of the hand, which results in maximum comfort. The textured surface provides tactile feedback and minimizes slippage in the hand. In short, SUAM achieves audio signaling serving as a user-friendly, unobtrusive guide for the blind or visually impaired.
