Project Details


General objective Develop a robotic support system to guide visually impaired people using artificial vision techniques and automatic control Justification For the reasons discussed in the previous section and thinking about the social inclusion of visually impaired people, in this project it is proposed to develop an investigation that allows obtaining a support system to guide blind people. In addition, this project will contribute to the development of Electronic Engineering and Automation students, allowing these students to be directly involved in this research with their final degree projects. The final degree projects will focus mainly on investigating and solving problems that contribute to the main objective of this proposal. Being the main areas of study Artificial Vision, Robotics and the application of Automatic Control techniques. Another of the motivations that drives this work is the direct relationship with the research line of the Electronics and Automation career. At the same time, it is directly related to the good living plan and the improvement of the productive matrix of the government of the Republic of Ecuador. It should also be noted that the teachers involved in this project are directly related to the subject, the latter due to to their areas of specialization obtained through their master's studies.
