A low-cost system using sparse vision for navigation in the urban environment

Abstract:

Established mobility aids, such as the long cane, enable visually impaired users to travel safely in urban environments This paper describes continuing work to enhance this mobility by providing a series of high-level navigational goals. In particular, we describe algorithms to detect doorways and to facilitate centre-path travel. To maintain high performance at low cost, both algorithms use sparsely-sampled images from a single camera. Doorway detection is achieved by the detection of charac...
