INSPEX- Integrated Smart Spatial Exploration System

 The INSPEX objective is to develop a portable/wearable, multi-sensor, miniaturised, low power spatial exploration system. The INSPEX system will be used for real-time, 3D detection, location and warning of obstacles under all environmental conditions in indoor and outdoor environments with unknown static and mobile obstacles. INSPEX use applications include mobility for the visually impaired, safer human navigation in reduced visibility conditions (smoke, dust, fog, heavy rain/snow, darkness or combinations of these), small robot/drone.

The INSPEX system will adapt obstacle-detection capabilities common in autonomous cars for portable and wearable  applications including guidance for the visually impaired and blind, robotics, drones and smart manufacturing. It will be used for real-time, 3D detection, location and warning of obstacles under all environmental conditions. These include smoke, dust, fog, heavy rain/snow, and darkness, and in indoor and outdoor environments with unknown stationary and mobile obstacles.
