Abstract [en]

Horse riding is a popular sport among young deaf people in Sweden. A gradual decrease in visual acuity is also not very uncommon, and thus some young horse enthusiasts encounter increasing difficulties in performing their favorite sport with autonomy. In collaboration with Segersjö Fälttävlan, a system has been designed and tested at Ahlsén Research Institute to provide position information in the riding school and vibratory transmitted information to support the rider’s orientation.There are two alternative positioning systems. One is based on a fixed sensing system localizing the rider. In the other system, the instructor provides the position using a hand-held PC with a simple point-and-click interface. The position of the rider is indicated on the screen pointer or a mouse. The information is coded in different ways. Three alternatives are being considered at present. First, the deviation from the pre-determined route is indicated in terms of both angular deviation and distance. Second, the change in direction needed to return to the route is indicated. Third, the conventional letter codes are indicated by signaling the angular deviation to the closest letter at each point in time.The information is transferred to nine vibrators, localized on a waist belt or a headband. Experiments where the rider is wearing a vest with vibrators on the back, is also in progress. In the communicating system using pre-determined instructions, instructions are given using one- or two-letter Morse codes. With the presented construction, the system can be used in a riding school that has a fixed positioning system mounted or in any riding school by using the instructor-controlled positioning system.
