---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a sonification prototype designed to help users that are blind or have low vision. Designed as a sound guide that gives information on the user’s environment as a complement to the classic cane or guide dog. Consists of a stereo vision processor mounted on an eyeglasses-type frame that measures the difference of images captured by two cameras that are placed slightly apart and calculates the distance to each point in the scene. Then, it transmits the information to the user by means of a sound code that gives information regarding the position and distance to the different obstacles.
