Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We are studying a new walking navigation interface for visually impaired people. In our previous study, we have proposed two methods for measuring gaps between a planned path and a current walking path. Based on the measured gaps, we propose a sound and tactile interface with which visually impaired can walk along the planned path. We have developed two different methods for a situation of straight path walking and that of making turn at corners. The boundary of the two situations are automatically detected.
