Tucic and Mathieu Paquette for a discussion of how one can best utilize
electronic navigation aids such as the new Stellar Trek to further increased
awareness and efficiency when traveling. Peter will spotlight how artificial
intelligence can now even further augment one’s orientation and mobility
skillset to better understand any environment when traveling with GPS devices
designed specifically for the visually impaired. This device can both assist
the seasoned traveler as well as someone who may be newer to vision loss.
