Engineering solutions have involved in everyone’s life, most importantly are those aiming to help people with disabilities, however, the modern assistance devices with their current prices are not meeting the requirements of the market. This project is mainly focusing on people with visual impairments and more specifically their education life. It is presenting a concept of smart glasses to provide assistance in multiple tasks represented as modes to be chosen by the user. To prove the concept, this project implements only one mode which is reading using text detection techniques. Taking into consideration the cost, this project is using the single board computer raspberry pi 2 as the heart of the processing and the raspberry pi camera for image capturing and video recording. The video taken is processed using MATLAB, and the description of the live scenes for the text recognition mode or any other future implemented modes will be provided to the user in an audio format. Finally the results of this project show the design of the smart glasses prototype.
