Assistive Technology for Blind Pedestrians to Cross Roads Safely

The long-term goal of the program is to develop a prototype device which will demonstrate the feasibility of the assistive technology to help blind pedestrians. In the proposed project the research team will develop technology to address two components of the technology needed for the long-term project: (a) Reliable traffic light detection using Google street view (GSW) and (b) Image Geo­localization using GSW.
