Abstract

Blind persons are devoid of vision, which plays an important role in day-to- day life. The lack of vision restricts the autonomity of a blind person to a level. Computer Vision and Machine Learning have seen rapid growth in recent years and have been used in the past for developing assistive systems. In this paper, a visual recognition based assistive system is proposed to compensate for the lack of vision. This project uses a pre-trained model obtained by training COCO dataset on MobileNet network. The YOLO algorithm has been used for object detection. Experiemental results shows the proposed system performs fairly well as compared to existing applications that are available in the Google Play store. The application can handle illumination changes and transformation with negligible performance degrade. This system has its own limitations which are discussed later in the conclusion section.
