Abstract

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.
