LocalSonic's Local Guidance System (LGS) is a turn-by-turn navigation system for indoor use to aid the visually impaired. Pressing a button on the user device (NavU), a component of the LGS, will make the NavU emit a combination of radio and ultrasonic waves. These waves will be received by nearby beacons with ultrasonic sensors, which will in turn relay the LGS user's distance from the beacon to the NavU. The NavU will then inform the LGS user of their physical position in relation to the closest landmarks inside the building via audio.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
