Information about the project
Disabilities Meet Complete Solutions For Disabled People (DMCSDP)
DMCS (Disabilities Meet Complete Solutions) is an application along with a specific hardware, that provides a complete package to disable people. It covers four categories of disability, that are Blind, Deaf, Dumb and Gait disability. Our System aids the user in reading, recognizing currency, crossing obstacle, human recognition, vehicle detection, color dominance, speech to text, text to speech and speech to sign. For gait disability, we have figured out a way to distinguish between different types of Gait Disabilities such as Diplegic, Hemipleg, Stomping, Stepage and Wedling Gait Disability, providing the patient complete real-time information of patient’s gait in comparison with the reference angle of the gait. The result is then displayed in the form of graph that can be saved and checked in the future. We have used android studio as a development platform for the software part. Raspberry pi and python are used for the hardware portion. The computer visions library has been used in this project. The software part is to be interfaced with the hardware module which can then be used by blind to guide through its path for indoor walking and make life easier and simpler. For Blinds, the application contains Vehicle Detection, Human Detection, Weather Guidance, Map Guidance (Outdoor map), OCR, Color Dominancy and Currency Recognition. The hardware portion is special feature of the system that is basically for Blinds. In this part, application is interfaced with server, where database is developed and then it is interfaced with raspberry pi and android studio. This module is then interfaced with a Kinect sensor which is to be used for virtual mapping of a room guiding blind through its way. For Dumb, text to speech language is used to communicate dumb with normal people. For Deaf, speech to sign and text to speech feature is included to convey the message of deaf to normal people and speech to text for communicating with deaf. For Gait, we use three different color bands that are tied up on patient’s body and find the angle between them, providing the patient complete information about his/her gait.
International implementation
