Abstract

In this paper, a haptic-based interpretation of video images directly acquired by a webcam is introduced to help individuals who are visually impaired dynamically explore their own faces in an immersive haptic environment. Haptic interaction involves perception of the movement of different facial features through geometric cues in a 3D environment. Spatio-temporal variation of features due to facial movement assists those who are visually impaired to understand different facial expressions of emotions through active exploration of their own facial features. A dynamic haptic interface appropriate for this kind of interaction has been discussed. Lastly, application of this kind of training has been proposed for communication among individuals who are deafblind.
