Improving Mobility of Low Vision People with Super-Reality Glasses

The project team proposes a pilot study of assistive technology for people with vision disabilities of central field loss (CFL) and low contrast sensitivity (LCS). The project team's technology includes super-reality (SR) glasses with enhanced image contrast by overlaying highlights of objects, signs onto the transparent glasses. The wearable technology will increase multimodal mobility, not only for driving, but also walking and navigating, and other activities of daily living. The deployment sites include Low Vision Rehabilitation Centers in PA, with partner Dr. Paul Freeman, OD of AGH.
