Reduced Inequalities SDG 10

Objective

To design a device to enable people who are blind to recognize who is around them without them having to ask many questions or having someone else describe their surroundings every time.

Solution

An easily wearable device that recognizes common faces and basic surrounding  objects, and describes these to the wearer through audio. A camera could be used for a  video feed, which is run through a machine-learning program in an embedded  computer to detect the faces of known people. A headband or cap was chosen since it  is an attire suitable for walking. These could also possibly be integrated into glasses  that he already wears.

A remote-like device with differently-textured buttons that when pressed, have  different functions such as detecting the distance to the nearest object (possibly using  ultrasonic sensors), recognizing faces when pointed, and alerting for assistance.
