A review of the principles governing Sensory Substitution
Currently pursuing a PhD combining Cognitive Neurosciences & Computer Sciences, I work on several projects aiming to develop smart wearable devices to assist Visually Impaired People (VIP). Those assistive devices, based on the Sensory Substitution framework, will leverage advances in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision and Information and Communication Technologies to improve VIP autonomy, safety, and quality of life.

Past and current projects
Design, implementation and evaluation of assistive devices for the Blind and Visually Impaired, combining Computer Vision algorithms, Sensor Fusion and Information & Communication Technologies.
International project aiming to develop an Electronic Orientation & Travel Aid for the autonomous navigation of VIP, based on Spatial Cognition models and Information & Communication Technologies.
Tactile interface to provide VIP access to art and paintings inside museums.
Audio-tactile virtual environment to prepare a journey beforehand for VIP.
Get involved in our projects, or with our collaborators
Our projects are vast endeavours and involve fundamental research for the design of our assistive devices, electrical and software engineering for their implementation, and experimental studies for their evaluation.
Whether you are a researcher, an engineer, an industry, or simply if you wish to participate in our studies to contribute to their development, we always welcome new collaborators. So don’t hesitate to contact us !
