Spatial Updating During Indoor Navigation with Visual Impairment


Spatial Updating refers to one’s ability to keep track of current location and heading while moving through a space. The process of navigating a sighted world can be especially difficult for individuals with visual impairments who can become disoriented in even the most familiar of environments. In an ongoing project, we are studying the impact of visual and auditory cues on spatial updating by blind and low-vision subjects in an indoor setting. This project is part of a larger program of research aimed at developing more accessible indoor spaces.
