Research Topics

1. Analysis of the graphic image generation process of the visually impaired.

Visually impaired people try to understand figures and shapes with fingers. However, the understanding process of figures and shapes by fingers is not clear, and it is not easy to guarantee information for visually impaired people. In this research, we try to elucidate the understanding process of figures and shapes with fingers of visually impaired persons. Specifically, it detects and tracks the position of the finger position and quantitatively analyzes and evaluates the touch process from its tactile information (similarity, feature value, etc.).
