In this paper, earth coordinate of the guidance robot for the visually impaired is detected by using GPS (Global Position System), and the system which leads the visually impaired to position information (TM coordinate) in Korea is achieved through map-matching with electronic map. The visually impaired need more information about the walking path than ordinary people when walking outdoor. Therefore, we studied implementation which can guide the visually impaired more safely through map-matching with GPS signal by making electronic map for the visually impaired.
