These days, technology can do virtually anything, including putting blind people behind the wheel. The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) and an engineering team at Virginia Tech have been working since 2007 to produce a vehicle that will allow blind people to drive.The prototype for the first self-driving vehicle is a Ford Escape with a non-visual interface to help sightless drivers maneuver on the road. Vibrating gloves tell the driver where and when to turn and laser sensors to act as the driver's "eyes."The NFB hopes that self-driving vehicles will provide blind people with greater independence and change the way people perceive the blind.Blind drivers will test-drive the modified Escape at Daytona International Speedway in January.
