Abstract

Much recent research attention has focused on providing some form of visually meaningful information to blind people through electrical stimulation of a component of the visual system. Current technology limits the number of perceived points of light (phosphenes) that can be provided to a user and methods are required to optimize the amount of presented information. This paper describes a PDA based artificial human vision simulator, and proposes a method for alerting a user of possible looming obstacles. Experimental results indicate that obstacle alerts can be successfully provided, however with the current simulator components, high-quality lighting and accurate image segmentation is critical for reducing the number of false alerts.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
