After grand success of SmartCane,we identified more serious problems which could be solved using the current technologies. The three major problems we want to tackle with MAVI are:
The MAVI device intends to provide real time safety against stray animals, potholes or obstructions in the walkway which could be potentially missed/dangerous for the cane.
Visually impaired individuals are able to recognize their friends with Face Recognition technology.
While we're targeting signboard reading currently, there is a possibility to including SLAM technology for future versions
A mix of computer vision, web based and cloud based techniques are being used in order to achieve the same. The idea is to have a system which could work both offline and online since the network conditions aren't very reliable for a huge majority.
