Using robotics, laser rangefinders, GPS, and smart feedback tools, Dennis Hong is building a car for drivers who are blind. He is careful to note that it is not a "self-driving" car, but a car in which a non-sighted driver can determine speed, proximity and route — and drive independently. Professor at Purdue University (2002) Dennis Hong, PhD is developing a car that can actually be driven by the blind. The aim is to integrate several computer systems, sensors, and cameras to observe the enviro
