Presentation Title:

  • Lazarillo GPS




  • Abstract

    Lazarillo is a common word in Spanish, used to describe people who act as guides for disabled people. The word originates from the story, ‘El Lazarillo de Tormes’ about a blind man called Tormes who was always followed and guided by Lázaro, a young boy and from which the word Lazarillo appeared. This project, as the title announces, is part of a prototype which rebuilds the guide figure for wheelchair users with a GPS – as if it were the ‘Lazarillo’.
