New AR glasses found to improve mobility in low vision patients

August 27, 2019

Existing wearable VR technologies for low vision are limited and difficult to use, claimed the researchers.

The new AR glasses leverage assistive technology to improve but not replace the natural senses. The system is designed to project bright colours corresponding to surrounding obstacles onto the user’s retinas.

Simultaneous location and mapping were used to enable the glasses to render the three-dimensional (3D) structure of a room in real-time.
