A brand-new system of BIDI codes

NaviLens

The application is based on a novel system of artificial markers, which combines high density (multitude of combinations) with long range (a 20cm wide marker is detected up to 12 meters away).

In addition, the detection algorithm could read multiple markers at the same time, at high speed and even in full motion.

Features

THE FASTEST

Reading markers with NaviLens is almost instantaneous.

LONG DISTANCE

Capable of reading the labels from long distances, depending on the size of the marker.

NO FOCUS

No need for focusing, which is essential for people with visual impairments.

MOVEMENT

Navilens algorithm detects the tags when the user is walking or in motion while the cell phone is pointed up.

PRECISE DISTANCE AND ORIENTATION

Navilens accurately detects the distance between the user and the tags. In addition, NaviLens provides the relative angle of the user with respect to the tag.

MULTIPLE READING

It detects multiple tags simultaneously, efficiently communicating them to the user

Here is a brief summary of the most frequently asked questions posted by users

NaviLens is a new integral system of artificial markers based on Computer Vision. It allows to read at a great distance the special signage displayed in an environment, to be oriented towards them and to obtain detailed information associated to said indications in a way equivalent to how the normal signaling would read a person with full visual capacity. To do this, the marker recognition algorithm is complemented by a novel 3D sound system that, without the need for headphones, informs the user of the position, distance and orientation of the marker. It allows a person with visual impairment to have full autonomy of movement inside unknown spaces in equal conditions that a person who sees.

NaviLens consists of a web application with which labels are designed and managed and a mobile client to read them (for iOS and Android). The application is fully accessible: Graphic elements of large size and high contrast. Special care has been taken in the integration with TalkBack and Voice Over, the interfaces that people with visual disabilities use to interact with their mobile. It also has a unique 3D Sonification System in its category, which does not require headphones (which is important so as not to deprive the blind user of hearing) in order to make the totally blind user perceive the position and orientation of the marker.

The interface of NaviLens is very simple. It consists of a main panel where the captured labels and five buttons appear. The panel shows the labels in the reverse order in which they are captured.
  • Settings - Here you can modify both the location mode and the additional message information.
  • Flash - Activates or deactivates the flash for low light environments.
  • Zoom - Use the zoom to capture labels at twice the distance.
  • About - Information about the authors and help.

The complete NaviLens system is available in the 5 EFIGS languages ​​(English, French, Italian, German & Spanish, so that each user receives the information contained in the signage in their own language.) We are currently working to incorporate the languages ​​requested by our users. You can leave us your suggestion at info@NaviLens.com

NaviLens is developed by the Mobile Vision Research Lab of the University of Alicante and Neosistec. For any questions, questions or suggestions you can contact us at info@NaviLens.com
