Abstract

We present in this paper a system conceived to perform a bioinspired image processing and different output encoding schemes, oriented to the development of visual aids for the blind or for visually-impaired patients. We remark some of its main features, as the possibility of combining different image processing modalities (colour, motion, depth, etc.) and different output devices (Head Mounted Displays, headphones, and microelectrode arrays), as well as its implementation on a reconfigurable chip (FPGA) or a specific VLSI chip, which allows working in real time on a portable equipment. A software design environment has been developed for the simulation and the automatic synthesis of the processing models into a hardware platform.
