The Touch & Go is an innovative navigation system that has been designed for the blind people to make them self-directed. The device acts as a wearable navigator comprising a hand gadget along with an earpiece and a tactile display that provides the directions as a map. The device gives direction at 1:1000 scale and remains in the center of the position of the users. An indicating arrow directs the user to move in and supports the user via auditory signals to the earphone, equipped with an ultrasonic transmitter-receiver. Using the device is convenient; it remains tied with the back of the user’s hand with included straps.
