AudioVision: A Stereophonic Analogue to Visual Systems

Abstract: AudioVision is designed to take a visual representation of the world–inthe form form of one or more video feeds–and convert it into a related stereophonic audio representation. With such a representation, it should be possible for someone who has minimal or no use of their visual system to avoid obstacles using their sense of hearing rather than vision. To this end, several different vision algorithms, including single and multiple image disparity, disparity from motion, and optical flow were investigated.
