Research overview:
We have developed a support system that enables individuals with visual impairments to recognize three-dimensional objects or environments interacthively. A stereo camera system used as an input device allows 3D visual information to be acquired. This visual information is converted into tactile and anditory information that can be easily understood by the visually impaired.
