Assistive devices for blind and visually impaired people are one of the technologies that famous among the researchers. There are many devices has been developed by the researcher in order to aid the visually impaired people to move around. One of the challenges faces by the blind and visually impaired people is stair. Using traditional method, the present of the staircase cannot be detected in a safe distance. Rovision is one of the devices that has the capability to guide the user to move to desired place without hitting any obstacle or object. In mobile robot, sensors play important roles in guiding the robot by sending the data of the surrounding for the robot to execute the action. Camera and ultrasonic sensor are two sensors that use in the Rovision to navigate the robot in safe distance while detecting the staircase. Image processing is one of the best methods in detecting staircase. It has a capability to learn by its own using the training dataset. By training the dataset, the system be able to identify the staircase and the position inside the camera frame to help Rovision to maneuver and guide the user safely. Rovision also use ultrasonic sensors to avoid obstacle in surrounding in order to have clear and safe path for the visually impaired person. This AI-Based Level Detection and Optimisation of Assistive Robot Maneuverability book will be useful for postgraduate students as well as final year undergraduate students researching on robotics area especially using the latest python software with focus on artificial intelligence techniques.
