Building a Semiautonomous Vehicle Driven by the Visually Impaired with LabVIEW and CompactRIO

Blind 15-year-old, Ishaan Rostogi (pictured in drivers seat), drives the world's first blind driver vehicle, developed by Virginia Tech using NI technologies.

"With limited funding and development time, NI products played a vital role in the project success by providing an easy-to-use and cost-effective prototyping platform."

- Dr. Dennis Hong, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

The Challenge:
Developing a semiautonomous vehicle that allows a blind driver to successfully navigate, control speed, and avoid collision through a secure driving course.

The Solution:
Using NI CompactRIO and LabVIEW software to build and program the world's first functional prototype of a blind driver vehicle.
