For blind people, or people with visual impairments (PVI), technology has a huge potential to increase accessibility. Indoor navigation and locating single items are two areas that can be improved by tailoring current research to PVI needs and innovating services they currently use. This project explores mobile apps, computer vision, and wearable devices as potential assistive tools. Using these tools, PVI can achieve everyday tasks with more independence, effectiveness, and efficiency.
