The goal of this project is to develop multi-purpose assistant systems which allow users with sensory handicaps and with minor cognitive or physical disabilities safe and independent mobility. By combining local sensor data with information from environmental models these assistant systems should enable to compensate single or multiple handicaps and to provide users access to a theoretically limitless variety of environments.
