Evaluating Stereo Cartoon Depth Maps as Scene Information for the Blind

P. Picton and M. Capp (UK)


Real-time vision, stereoscopic vision, navigation aids.


Important scene information may be relayed to a blind person via mobility aids that incorporate an image to sound mapping. However, these devices are frequently both tiring and stressful to use. A new display technique, which combines a stereo edge depth map with a cartoon like scene representation is described. Experimental results are included that demonstrate the effectiveness of the algorithm.
