Abstract

In this paper we present the TARSIUS system, based on mobile technology and aimed at enhancing visually-impaired and blind people's capabilities in visual scene understanding and geolocation while are outdoor. The system components are the TARSIUS app for mobile devices, a web server, and the Remote Assistance Center. Its interface is optimized for the perceptual characteristics of its users. Moreover, the TARSIUS navigation sub-system not only leverages the GPS system, but also Bluetooth LE/iBeacon tags placed along the streets at points of interest and dangerous paths and areas.
