Mobility enhancement and assessment for a visual prosthesis
Dowling, Jason A. & Maeder, Anthony J. (2004) Mobility enhancement and assessment for a visual prosthesis. In Amini, Amir A. & Manduca, Armando (Eds.) SPIE Medical Imaging 2004: Physiology, Function, and Structure from Medical Images, 14-19 February 2004, San Diego.
This paper investigates methods of processing mobility related static images to enhance the effectiveness of a visual prosthesis system. Eight images were processed into 50x50 pixel binary, greyscale, Sobel and Canny edge detected images. 10 subjects were asked 5 mobility related identification tasks for each (randomly ordered) image. Results indicate that edge detection may be useful at this resolution. However, there was not a significant difference found between the results achieved using the Canny and Sobel algorithms. These results support the development of an adaptive device. A mobility display framework has been proposed to assist in this development. Future work will focus on processing image sequences and the development of a visual prosthesis simulation device.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
