Abstract

Introduction: Odometry is the ability for people to walk a required distance, then turn around and walk to their original position while blindfolded. Odometry accuracy has been found to be differentially impacted by step length, walking speed, distance, gait type, and location of data collection. However, a systematic review of the literature has not been performed, but will allow investigators to have a clear and concise picture of known results, a plan of action to eliminate literature gaps, and identify topics to further develop our understanding of odometry.

Intended Questions to Answer: What is the state of the art? What are the independent and dependent variables manipulated or assessed? What are the common sample sizes and populations? What nomenclature can be used for a clear description of odometry? What data has been collected and the results? What problems should be investigated in the future? Does the literature consist of high-quality papers?

Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria: Articles were included if they contain human subjects, self-locomotion, a straight-line path, at least one trial or condition with a blindfolded measure and report, written in English, and primary research in a peer-reviewed journal. Articles were excluded if they contain passive transport, a nonlinear path, sighted objects, handheld props that are not part of the subject’s activities of daily living, place learning, reviews, meta-analysis, or opinions.

Databases: The databases Web of Science, SCOPUS, IEEEXplore, PubMed Central, PsycInfo, and PsycArticles were sampled on 11/30/2021 using a Boolean search string.

Results: 6,520 articles were identified and will be evaluated.
