Title: METHODS, APPARATUSES, AND SYSTEMS TO RECOGNIZE AND AUDIBILIZE OBJECTS
Abstract:
Apparatuses, methods, and systems to assist a visually-impaired user. Embodiments include a 3D depth camera to be worn or co-located with the visually-impaired user to collect data to recognize an object in an environment and to collect data to locate the object relative to the visually-impaired user in the environment; and a speech-based interaction device to communicate to the visually-impaired user recognition and location of the object based on the data collected by the 3D depth camera. Embodiments may include use of a haptic feedback device to provide tactile feedback to the visually-impaired user to positively or negatively reinforce a location of the visually-impaired user relative to the object to allow the user to grasp the object. Other embodiments may also be described and claimed.
