For people who ardently love painting but unfortunately have visual impairments, holding a paintbrush to create a work is a very difficult task. People in this special group are eager to pick up the paintbrush, like Leonardo da Vinci, to create and make full use of their own talents. Therefore, to maximally bridge this gap, we propose a painting navigation system to assist blind people in painting and artistic creation. The proposed system is composed of cognitive system and guidance system… Expand


Comparing Computer-Based Drawing Methods for Blind People with Real-Time Tactile Feedback
A drawing workstation for blind people using a two-dimensional tactile pin-matrix display for in- and output with four different input modalities, namely menu- based, gesture-based, freehand-stylus and a Time-of-Flight depth segmentation of real-world object silhouettes. Expand
An ARCore Based User Centric Assistive Navigation System for Visually Impaired People
In this work, we propose an assistive navigation system for visually impaired people (ANSVIP) that takes advantage of ARCore to acquire robust computer vision-based localization. To complete theExpand
Vision-Based Mobile Indoor Assistive Navigation Aid for Blind People
A new holistic vision-based mobile assistive navigation system to help blind and visually impaired people with indoor independent travel and an efficient obstacle detection and avoidance approach based on a time-stamped map Kalman filter (TSM-KF) algorithm are presented. Expand
Using Technology Developed for Autonomous Cars to Help Navigate Blind People
This paper builds an obstacle avoidance system for blind people that is based on a hardware platform used in the automotive industry, and adapt an implementation of the stixels algorithm, designed for self-driving cars. Expand
Automatic generation and detection of highly reliable fiducial markers under occlusion
A fiducial marker system specially appropriated for camera pose estimation in applications such as augmented reality and robot localization is presented and an algorithm for generating configurable marker dictionaries following a criterion to maximize the inter-marker distance and the number of bit transitions is proposed.

Wearable Vision Assistance System Based on Binocular Sensors for Visually Impaired Users
Simulations and experiments show that the proposed method can solve the problem effectively and statistical results demonstrate that wearable vision system can make visually impaired group more satisfied in visual needed situations. Expand
Indoor navigation by blind people: Behaviors and challenges in unfamiliar spaces and buildings
A number of visually impaired people suffer from navigation-related activities due to mishaps that discourage them from going out for social activities and interactions. In contrast to outdoors,Expand
Digital Drawing Tools for Blind Users: A State-of-the-Art and Requirement Analysis
In this paper, an analysis of several software projects for non-visual drawing support is performed and a more complete checklist of thirty-five requirements in four categories that cover the principles of the ISO 9241-110 standard is proposed. Expand
Production of Accessible Tactile Graphics
Some requirements for enhancing the production of accessible tactile graphics by a software tool that not only supports the creation of image masters and descriptions, but also includes blind users in the editing process are defined. Expand
A Wearable Virtual Usher for Vision-Based Cognitive Indoor Navigation
A wearable virtual usher for cognitive indoor navigation based on egocentric visual perception is proposed, which achieves over 13% improvement in accuracy as compared to baseline approaches based on hidden Markov model. Expand
