BlindAssist is an iOS application which has the goal to support blind people on the road. Since I have a blind brother, I decided to create this open source project.
The assisting process will be done using deep learning, image segmentation and translating the inference results to sentences which will be spoken out loud by tts (text to speech). The model used for this process is based on the cityscapes dataset.
Currently BlindAssist uses CoreML. You can run the
download_model.sh script to
get the prebuilt model.
The source of the model can be found here: https://github.com/BlindAssist/blindassist-scripts
