Georgia Tech SWAN

What if you want to find your way inside a building where resolution requirements are higher than those provided with GPS today? Georgia Tech has a good answer for that with SWAN.

AP is running a story on it:

"Georgia Institute of Technology researchers are trying to pick up where GPS leaves off. Its System for Wearable Audio Navigation, or SWAN, consists of a wearable computer connected to a headband packed with sensors that help sight-impaired users know where they are and how to get where they're going."
Here is the Georgia Tech research site.
