A Recent Study on Object Recognition for Visually Impaired Persons Using Smart Phone
Mobile platforms such as smart-phones and tablet computers have attained the technological capacity to perform tasks beyond their intended purposes. The steady increase of processing power has enticed researchers to attempt increasingly challenging tasks on mobile devices with appropriate modifications over their stationary counterparts. In this paper, the authors describe main features of software modules developed for Android smart phones that are dedicated for the blind users. The main module can recognize and match scanned objects to a database of objects, e.g. vegetable containers.
