A Tracking Topology To Support A Trajectory Monitoring System Directed At Helping Visually Impaired On Paralympic Athletics

The study reported by this article was based on previous studies about the development of assistive technology for visually impaired athletes and aimed to evaluate a tracking topology that can be applied for the location and orien-tation of visually impaired on Paralympic Athletics. The paper presents the tracking topology and its integration in a trajectory monitoring system able to provide vibratory stimulus to visually impaired athletes. Moreover, the paper also presents the results of an experiment that was set up to evaluate a trajec-tory monitoring system prototype by eight visually impaired athletes when performing their training activities.
