Abstract

We developed wearable artificial eyes for people with visual impairment for achieving joint attention during communication. The glasses use sensors to recognize other person's head and face, and automatically generate similar gaze behavior. It can also detect the opponents gaze direction and inform the users by means of vibration motors for suggesting users to turn their head in the same direction, which supports joint attention skills. We have proposed several applications for our devices in this paper.
