Despite significant recent developments, visual assistance systems are still severely constrained by sensor capabilities, form factor, battery power consumption, computational resources, and the use of traditional computer vision algorithms. Current visual assistance systems cannot adequately perform complex computer vision tasks that entail deep learning. This webinar presents the design and implementation of a novel visual assistance system that employs deep learning and point cloud processing to perform advanced perception tasks on a cost-effective, low-power mobile computing platform.
