This report provides a non-technical overview of the Sound of Vision project in which the consortium partners designed and develop a solution for visually impaired persons to help them better understand their surrounding environment and improve their mobility. As a part of the Sound of Vision solution the consortium also developed training instruments and procedures.

Correct assertion of the ground geometry improves… Continue Reading Ground Geometry Assessment in Complex Stereo Vision Based ApplicationsDetails
Authors: Nicolae Botezatu, Simona Caraiman, Dariusz Rzeszotarski, Pawel Strumillo in: System Theory, Control and Computing (ICSTCC), 2017 21st International Conference on Abstract: In this paper we describe the 3D acquisition component integrated in the Sound of Vision (SoV) system. SoV is a computer vision based sensory substitution device (SSD) for the visually impaired. Its main objective is to provide… Continue Reading Development of a Versatile Assistive System for the Visually Impaired Based on Sensor FusionDetails
Authors: Paul Herghelegiu, Adrian Burlacu and Simona Caraiman in: System Theory, Control and Computing (ICSTCC), 2017 21st International Conference on Abstract: The research on developing assistive devices for visually impaired people greatly relies on image processing techniques. Extensive effort is made on detecting the obstacles in front of the user. Beside the normal obstacles that the user can… Continue Reading Negative Obstacle Detection for Wearable Assistive Devices for Visually ImpairedDetails
