  1. 1. Improving roundabouts for cyclists and visually impaired

    Detta är en avhandling från Lunds tekniska högskola, instutionen för teknik och samhälle, trafik och väg

    Författare :Lisa Sakshaug; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accessibility; safety; visually impaired; cyclist; roundabout;

    Sammanfattning : Roundabouts are continuing to increase due to their high traffic safety, low delay times and their winning design. However, there are also problems related to roundabouts; the traffic safety for cyclists is unclear or even negative and there are reports of accessibility problems for people with visual impairment.

  2. 2. Design and Evaluation of 3D Multimodal Virtual Environments for Visually Impaired People

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Ying Ying Huang; KTH.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Multimodal interaction; 3D worlds; Haptics; Audio; Visually impaired users; Collaboration; Navigation; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Spatial information presented visually is not easily accessible to visually impairedusers. Current technologies, such as screen readers, cannot intuitively conveyspatial layout or structure. This lack of overview is an obstacle for a visuallyimpaired user, both when using the computer individually and when collaboratingwith other users. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Servicescapes seen by visually impaired travellers : Time-geography approach to servicescape research

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Alma Raissova; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; servicescape; time-geography; constraints; tactics; blind; visually impaired persons; servicescape; tidsgeografi; begränsningar; taktik; blinda; synskadade;

    Sammanfattning : Kunskapsluckor kvar i studien av servicescapes, eftersom befintlig forskning på servicescapes tenderar att ignorera stora framsteg i förståelsen av tid och rum som sociala fenomen. En aspekt som särskilt kräver ytterligare studier är hur nya begränsningar påverkar kundernas interaktioner med organiserade serviceplatser. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Haptic Navigation Aids for the Visually Impaired

    Detta är en avhandling från Luleå tekniska universitet

    Författare :Daniel Innala Ahlmark; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industriell elektronik; Industrial Electronics;

    Sammanfattning : Assistive technologies have improved the situation in society for visually impaired individuals.The rapid development the last decades have made both work and education much more accessible. Despite this, moving about independently is still a major challenge, one that at worst can lead to isolation and a decreased quality of life. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Essay I: Return to Education for the Deaf/Hearing Impaired and the Blind/Visually Impaired, 1991-2000   Mincer-equations are estimated for the deaf/hearing impaired and the blind/visually impaired. The results show that the estimates of the coefficient for the education variable are lower than for a comparison group, and that for several years it is not statistically significant that education for the blind/visually impaired has a positive effect on labour income.
