AI based Assistive Wearable Device for Visually Impaired using Android Application

Authors(5) :-Chirag Thakur, Yash Pathak, Henali Hapaliya, Kalyani Adawadkar, Pinkal Shah

This system harnesses the power of Artificial Intelligence to provide vision by incorporating technology into a wearable device which improves the lives of individuals who are visually impaired. This device is useful in reading text materials, identifying different objects, facial expression detection, currency denomination and help user to locate their geographical location. User can operate whole system using only voice commands. This Device is based on our previous project which helps visibly impaired people to get auditory output to help its user to perceive their surroundings. This system has been redesigned to achieve more efficiency, feasibility and ease of use to its users.
