April 25, 2017
A model of Drishya, a personal assistant for the visually impaired developed by students of Manipal Institute of Technology is set to be launched next year.
Drishya was developed by a group of four students who call themselves Team VisionX. VisionX aims to make the lives of the visually impaired easier. It is a headgear that claims to help them recognize objects nearby and move through the surroundings.
The model has features like object recognition and face detection, and is mounted on a helmet.
There is also a sensor to judge the distance, and a camera to capture the image.
