Abstract

When visually impaired person has to walk out, they have to use white canes, but the range that can be scanned by a white cane is not long enough to walk safely. We propose to detect walkable plane areas on road surface by using the RGB-D camera and the accelerometer in the tablet terminal that is attached to the RGB-D camera. Our approach can detect plane areas in longer distance than a white cane. It is achieved by using height information from the ground and normal vectors of the surface calculated from a depth image obtained by the RGB-D camera in real time.Published in: 2017 3DTV Conference: The True Vision - Capture, Transmission and Display of 3D Video (3DTV-CON) Date of Conference: 7-9 June 2017 Conference Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
