We found a problem with technological help for the blind. We decided to make this program to help cover that gap.
What it does
POC: Translates logos to speech in order to help the blind in everyday situations
Goal: Translate street signs, hazard signs among others.
How we built it
Python, OpenCV, JSON, HPE, time, HavenOnDemand,Twilio
Challenges we ran into
Creating a time loop to take photos on a set period of instructions while updating the photo writing to a file every time a new photo was taken.
The second challenge was requesting the API from HPE and getting the API to acknowledge our request.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating the program and finishing.
What we learned
How to handle JSON objects
How to work with Rest API's
Use of Twilio
What's next for Blind View
Future applications include creating our own database to include street signs
