|Abstract: ||Visually Impaired are a group of people who have difficulties in recognition through
vision. In order to access information on product in daily life, they always ask other people.
As a result, they always feel troublesome on asking others.
Nowadays, most of products contain barcode label. Once the barcode label is
scanned, the information of the product can be retrieved. However, the barcode technology
cannot help Visually Impaired people acquiring products information. It is because the
barcode label should be scanned in accurate orientation directly. Since Visually Impaired
people cannot locate the label of product, they cannot match the barcode label with laser
source directly. Therefore, Barcode Technology cannot help them.
On the other hand, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is become
more and more popular. It uses Radio Frequency to transmit the data from the RFID Tag into
RFID Reader. It applies in different industries, e.g. Point‐of‐Sale System, Supply Chain
Management. It is obvious RFID would become a trend in Hong Kong.
An aim of the project is to enhance Visually Impaired acquiring information
anywhere through mobile device in daily life. It also extends the usage of RFID technology.
By using mobile device with RFID Reader, the system could detect the information in RFID
Tag. After processing, the product descriptions would be spoken out through the Speech
Engine on mobile device. Visually Impaired thus got information on product.|
