Mechatronics, Robotics, and System Engineering

Description

Statistic states that 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision. About 90% of the world's visually impaired people live in developing countries. Taking in consideration that Mechatronics is a methodology used for the optimal design of electromechanical products, and by combining technologies that are available to us we can develop a very useful tool that blind people and people with sight problems can change their lives. Combining smart phones and digital camera there are possibilities to build smart glasses which will give information to blind people. In this paper definitely a new approach for making peoples life easy is proposed. Initially the results are reached from simulation using Matlab/SIMULINK package which will lead this research to real time experimental results.
