Abstract

ICT can help blind people in movement and direction-finding tasks. This paper proposes a new methodology for safe mobility based on scale invariant feature transform (SIFT) that is expected to lead to higher precision and accuracy. Various existing gadgets for visually impaired are examined, and the conclusion is that the proposed methodology can enhance these gadgets.
