We present an open source augmented reality wearable device that provides the ability of smart vision to the blind. the device uses facial and object recognition for a smart analysis of the space around the blind person. it uses depth sensing to ﬁnd out the distances between the user and detected people and objects. text to speech techniques are used to inform the blind person about the smart analysis of the space around them. the device uses gesture recognition to trigger the audio output in order to prevent the device from being a distraction rather than an aid. the device is implemented as an open source platform to encourage open innovation in the ﬁeld of assistive technologies.
