We systematically analyse the design of the low-level vision components of a real-time system able to help a blind person in his/her social interactions. We focus on the acquisition and processing of the video sequences that are acquired by a wearable sensor (a smartphone camera or a Webcam) for the detection of faces in the scene. We review some classical and some very recent techniques that seem appropriate to the requirements of our goal.

Abstract

We systematically analyse the design of the low-level vision components of a real-time system able to help a blind person in his/her social interactions. We focus on the acquisition and processing of the video sequences that are acquired by a wearable sensor (a smartphone camera or a Webcam) for the detection of faces in the scene. We review some classical and some very recent techniques that seem appropriate to the requirements of our goal.
