RAHUL K NAMDEV
Rahul Namdev is a second year Phd student at EECS, MIT. He is working with Prof. Pattie Maes. He is mostly interested in human computer interface and robotics vision. His current research work is about developing a very interactive and intutive platform to make complex information (especially Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics material) truly accessible to blind and visually impaired students by using a tactile(braille) device. An important goal of this project is to develop tactile information mapping protocols through which any tactile (braille) device can best convey educational material and other graphical materials.
