Artificial Vision/ Smart Vision

Problem Definition:

And will the sun ever shine
In the blind man’s eyes … [Micheal Jackson Album Invincible 2001]

Vision is the greatest blessing on earth. For visually impaired people commute is a tough job. People even with vision need navigators to guide them to move around. Visually impaired usually walk with white stick or dogs which by no means are intelligent the way we use our navigation. There is a need of a system which may help blinds to commute freely, easily and fearlessly. This system is by no means a system of The vOICe, Bionic eyes or brain implants to generate artificial vision. [ http://www.artificialvision.com/etumble.htm]
