Title variants
Languages of publication
The paper constitutes a summary of the work carried out under the research project entitled The development of the method for marking and identification of the spots dangerous and of special importance for vision impaired persons in the big city with use of the wave-vibration markers. This article discusses key researches conducted during the project, including review of influence of environmental sounds on orientation and mobility of blind and partially sighted people, results of vibration perception threshold measurement taken at the wrist of both hands, measurements of paraseismic vibrations and results of researches on annoyance, recognizability and easiness to learn of selected signals.
