Proceedings of the International Conference on Sensory Devices for the Blind (London, England, June, 1966).
Dufton, Richard, Ed.
The conference proceedings include papers on sensory aids for visually handicapped mobility and reading. Two papers each treat mobility as a general problem, sociocultural surveys on mobility and reading, and echolocation in man and bats. Five papers concern reports and evaluations of practical trials of the sonic monaural aid; one deals with psychological aspects of mobility guidance displays; two report sensory researches in the Netherlands and Canada; and five on mobility aids consider current researches on sonic and optical systems. Other areas discussed are reading aids (four articles), rehabilitation and mobility (one article), and sensory evaluations and researches in the United States (three articles). Also provided are the opening and summary remarks for the conference and a panel discussion of future work. Appendixes outline workshop sessions, a visit to the Autonomics Division of the National Physical Laboratory, and aspects of tactile stimulation. (JD)
