Intelligent image processing constraints for blind mobility facilitated through artificial vision
Dowling, Jason A., Maeder, Anthony J., & Boles, Wageeh W. (2003) Intelligent image processing constraints for blind mobility facilitated through artificial vision.

This paper examines intelligent image processing constraints which may need to be considered for visual prosthesis development and proposes a display framework which incorporates context, task and alerts related to a scene. A simulation device to investigate this framework is also described. Mobility requirements, assessment, and devices are discussed to identify the functions required by a prosthesis, and an overview of state of the art visual prostheses is provided. Two main computer vision approaches are discussed with application to a visual prosthesis: information reduction and scene understanding.
