The research sets to address the challenge of negotiating surface discontinuities by the blind and low vision people along the urban pathway using technology. The central question of this research is: “How can a technology assist the blind and low vision people to negotiate surface discontinuities along their navigational pathway?”. Based on a design science methodology, a lightweight, small and unobtrusive prototype of a wearable technology-based system was proposed.
