Visible to the public GoingEasy with Crowdsourcing - Building Cyber-Physical Systems for People with Visual Impairment

Abstract:

Many practical barriers continue to exist for a blind individual who strives to live an independent and active life, despite decades of development of assistive technologies. This project addresses the following two most prominent challenges: (1) disparity in information-sharing among people with visual impairment and its limited understanding by the research community; and (2) lack of methods and tools for effectively addressing the disparity.
