Currently, visual perceptions generated by visual prosthesis are low resolution with unruly color and restricted grayscale. This severely restricts the ability of prosthetic implant to complete visual tasks in daily scenes. Some studies explore existing image processing techniques to improve the percepts of objects in prosthetic vision. However, most of them extract the moving objects and optimize the visual percepts in general dynamic scenes. The application of visual prosthesis in daily life…

Dynamic Action Recognition Under Simulated Prosthetic Vision
After a period of study, the performance of prosthesis wearers could be improved significantly as shown by the recognition pattern of dynamic action by visual prosthesis' wearers.


Image Processing Strategies Based on a Visual Saliency Model for Object Recognition Under Simulated Prosthetic Vision.
This work proposed two image processing strategies based on Itti's visual saliency map, region of interest (ROI) extraction, and image segmentation that were verified to be beneficial to object recognition in daily scenes under simulated prosthetic vision.
Optimization of Visual Information Presentation for Visual Prosthesis
The visual prosthesis using the proposed strategy can assist the blind to improve their ability to recognize objects using edge detection and zooming technique and significantly improve the recognition accuracy of objects.

The results suggest the proposed τ-based representation may facilitate earlier perception of incoming objects, and provide clearer distinction between moving objects and the static structure of the scene compared with intensity and depth-based scene representations.
Active confocal imaging for visual prostheses
Simulating prosthetic vision: Optimizing the information content of a limited visual display.
A simulation paradigm that used a head-mounted camera and eye tracker to lock the simulation to the point of fixation and three ways of optimizing the information content of the prosthetic visual image were explored, finding that different image representation conditions prove advantageous for different tasks.
Region-of-interest processing for electronic visual prostheses
Visual perception experiments undertaken with 192 normally sighted viewers to simulate artificially induced vision expected from emerging electronic visual prosthesis designs show that ROI processing improves scene understanding for low-quality images when used in a zoom application.
Challenges in digital imaging for artificial human vision
Several ideas are suggested in this paper, such as brightness modulation, range indication, importance mapping and the delivery of supplementary information, which will do much towards providing visual information comparable to that obtained via a normally functioning human eye but at far lower information rates.
