Abstract

In this work an attempt is made for designing a prototype in aid for color blind people in detecting color and edges of a given image which are of similar colors. Color blind people are restricted and even excluded from some professional jobs because of their deficiency to distinguish between colors. Motivation behind this work is to try and reduce such deficiency using technology. Image processing technique is used in proposed work to develop a setup for identifying the colors in an image and indicating the edges in case of different images with similar colors. Image processing involve two parts, first is color detection and the second is edge detection which is carried out on a LabVIEW platform. Images are obtained using a wireless camera in the field of view of a color blind person who is unable to identify or judge the colors. It is then processed using LabVIEW, color and edge of the image is displayed on LabVIEW front panel.
