Blind people are the vulnerable groups in human society, and the number of them is increasing year by year. Providing safe, reliable, intelligent and efficient travel guarantees for the blind is an important sign of social progress. The research results of white-cane-based, wearable, handheld, intelligent-terminal-based and mobile blind-guiding robots are introduced. The research status of the common key technology of environment detection, positioning and navigation, and human-computer interaction of blind-guiding robots is summarized. Finally, the future development trend of blind-guiding robots is forecasted based on the latest technologies such as cloud platform and mobile communication.

Key words: blind-guiding robot, obstacle avoidance, navigation, human-computer interaction
