Blind assistance is promoting a widely challenge in computer vision such as navigation and path finding. In this paper, two cameras placed on blind person’s glasses, GPS free service, and ultra-sonic sensor are employed to provide the necessary information about the surrounding environment. A dataset of objects gathered from daily scenes is created to apply the required recognition. Objects detection is used to find objects in the real world from an image of the world such as faces, bicycles, chairs, doors, or tables that are common in the scenes of a blind. The two cameras are necessary to generate the depth by creating the disparity map of the scene, GPS service is used to create groups of objects based on their locations, and the sensor is used to detect any obstacle at a medium to long distance. The descriptor of the Speeded-Up Robust Features method is optimized to perform the recognition. The proposed method for the blind aims at expanding possibilities to people with vision loss to achieve their full potential. The experimental results reveal the performance of the proposed work in about real time system.

Keywords: Objects detection, objects recognition, features detection and matching, face detection, detectors, filters, machine learning, image representation, and focusing
