Electronic glasses which use computer vision and augmented reality to improve visual capacity and increase autonomy of people who have low vision

Project description

Computer vision electronic eye glasses

More than 200 million people in the world suffer from impaired vision that cannot be improved either by surgery, medicine or use of eye glasses. Instead, the condition is aggravated with age, handicapping people with impaired vision, limiting their ability to perform even the simplest of common tasks. It also hampers their personal and profession lives. Biel Smartgaze glasses help improve the perception capacity of people with impaired vision with the assistance of artificial intelligence and VR/AR technologies. Features include navigation and people recognition, which are due to be included in future models, potentially also improving existing capabilities such as detecting obstacles, holes and street signs.
