Trans4Trans: Efficient Transformer for Transparent Object Segmentation to Help Visually Impaired People Navigate in the Real World [article]

Jiaming Zhang, Kailun Yang, Angela Constantinescu, Kunyu Peng, Karin Müller, Rainer Stiefelhagen
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Through various pre-tests and a user study conducted in indoor and outdoor scenarios, the usability and reliability of our assistive system have been extensively verified.  ...  Common fully glazed facades and transparent objects present architectural barriers and impede the mobility of people with low vision or blindness, for instance, a path detected behind a glass door is inaccessible  ...  Differing from most of these accuracy-oriented methods, we aim for a both efficient and robust semantic segmentation desirable for navigation assistance.  ...
