Abstract:
(EN) The invention concerns eyeglasses suitable for blind and/or deaf-blind people comprising at least one infrared ray emitter (1), connected to a first optical system (2), to lighten eventual obstacles according to pre-established directions, at least one reflected infrared ray receiver (3), connected to a second optical system (4), an electronic providing a signal function of the distance from the obstacle, and a tactile and/or sound vibrating interface (7) providing to the blind people an indication about the distance of the obstacles.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des lunettes destinées à des personnes aveugles et/ou sourdes et aveugles. Ces lunettes se composent d'au moins un émetteur infrarouge (1) connecté à un premier système optique (2) et illuminant d'éventuels obstacles selon des sens prédéfinis, d'au moins un récepteur (3) de réflexion infrarouge connecté à un second système optique, d'une logique électronique assurant une fonction de signal concernant l'éloignement par rapport à l'obstacle, et d'une interface à vibrations (7) tactiles et/ou sonores fournissant à la personne aveugle une indication concernant l'éloignement des obstacles.
