Tech Summary on smartphone app for visually impaired pedestrians
Client: Minnesota Department of Transportation
Audience: MnDOT managers and practitioners, other state DOTs

For most completed research studies funded by MnDOT or the Minnesota Local Road Research Board, as well as many ongoing FHWA State Planning and Research-supported pooled fund studies, CTC & Associates produces two-page, plain-English summaries that outline the research objectives, findings and plans for implementation. These Technical Summaries save time for MnDOT staff and investigators in reviewing completed research; provide an easy way for project managers to share results with staff in other areas; and facilitate technology transfer to regional office staff, local highway engineers, and other states. CTC has produced more than 200 Technical Summaries for MnDOT, and most are published online.
