We present a head-mounted, stereo-vision based navigational assistance device for the visually impaired. The head-mounted design enables our subjects to stand and scan the scene for integrating wide-field information, compared to shoulder or waist-mounted designs in literature which require body rotations. In order to extract and maintain orientation information for creating a sense of egocentricity in blind users, we incorporate visual odometry and feature based metric-topological SLAM into… CONTINUE READING
