Authors: Nuno Teixeira Almeida
Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: In this paper is presented the work relative to the design of an aid system, for athletes with special needs in terms of vision. The system is based on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and serves to help visually impaired athletes. Relatively to Paralympic athletics competitions, the main goal is the elimination of current guide runners. The system is prepared to give a stereo audio alert, when a runner deviates from his lane central area. The paper presents the main components, namely, the RFID infrastructure and the mobile parts. Tests to tags, infrastructure setting and positioning functions are also presented. (C) 2014 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd. This is an open access article under the CC BY-NC-ND License (
