Eagle Eye: Empowering the visually impaired
Living with visual impairment can be an incredibly isolating experience, with even simple tasks like reading and object recognition presenting huge challenges. But what if we told you there was a device that could change it all? A device that can read books, identify objects, and measure distances while being affordable and adaptable to future enhancements?
Introducing our groundbreaking device, “Eagle Eye”, designed with the visually impaired community in mind. This device is a game-changer, providing a level of independence and freedom that was once unimaginable. Let’s dive deeper into how it works, what sets it apart from other solutions, its use cases, and our plans to enhance it further.
How Eagle Eye Works
Our device is simple to use, with two modes: Reading mode and Object detection mode. Upon powering it on, two switches enable these modes.
The Reading mode uses a camera to capture an image of the text, which is then scanned using OCR technology and OpenCV libraries. Our TTS engine converts the text into an audio output, which can be heard by the visually impaired user.
Object Detection mode uses a camera to capture an image of the object, which is then identified using Tensor Flow and Python libraries. This mode also measures the distance of the object using ultrasonic sensors.
What Sets Our Solution Apart
Our device is affordable, ensuring that more people can benefit from this revolutionary technology. It’s also incredibly accurate, allowing the visually impaired to navigate their surroundings with confidence. And our device is adaptable, with future enhancements planned to include facial expression recognition, face and voice detection, and more.
Our device has endless use cases, but we want to highlight a few key examples of how it can transform lives:
- Reading: The Reading mode enables the visually impaired to access information from books, magazines, or any printed material, providing them with a sense of independence and joy that was previously unattainable.
- Object Detection: With the Object detection mode, the device can identify objects in the environment, making it easier for the visually impaired to navigate their surroundings safely. This means they can walk with confidence, avoiding obstacles and hazards.
- Distance Measurement: The device’s ability to measure the distance of an object is crucial for the visually impaired to avoid collisions and walk confidently. With this feature, they can explore their surroundings with ease and independence.
Eagle Eye represents a new era of empowerment and inclusion for the visually impaired community, enabling them to navigate the world with newfound independence and confidence. With its ability to read text, recognize objects, and measure distances, our device has endless possibilities for use cases and future development. We’re committed to continuously improving and enhancing our devices to meet the ever-changing needs of the visually impaired community.
