Wayfinder: Birmingham's Talking Street Furniture

A new facility to help blind and visually impaired people navigate their way around the heart of Birmingham city centre [UK] will be launched in Spring [Northern hemisphere] 2006. The 60 Wayfinder units will be installed around the city centre, providing users with practical audible information, to confirm their location and assist them to reach their destination safely.

Most units are being installed on existing street furniture to minimise street clutter and, where no street furniture exists, being fixed into new purpose built stainless steel posts located at the back of footways. Users will carry a trigger card to activate the speaker unit when within range. Details on how and where to obtain the triggers will be available shortly.

Users of this system are able to hear recorded navigational information through the use of auditory signposts. Users scan the signposts with trigger cards that presumably access the system through some sort of wireless technology (Bluetooth etc.).

Orienteering: The Linked List Structure

Paul Curzon
Orienteering courses [...] use the linked list structure: a series of places linked together in a chain. Orienteering is the sport where you have to map read you way round a course. It is like cross–country running except that you do not have to stick to paths and are not told the route to take. You are just told the series of points you must visit and the order you must visit them. You can either try to go in straight lines (through streams and thickets, down steep valleys only to go straight up the other side), or you can navigate round obstacles (going further to a bridge or contouring round the valleys). You are given a map at the start, with all the points you have to visit marked on it. The fastest person to complete the course wins. This is not necessarily the fastest runner, but the best combined runner and navigator. Orienteering is thus the sport of following a linked list through forest and moors as fast as possible.
