KYOTO, Japan (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Scientists in Japan have developed an "electronic eye" they say will effectively navigate the blind.
The new eye, the scientists say, will allow blind people to cross busy roads in total safety for the first time.
The electronic eye, which would be mounted on a pair of glasses, will be capable of detecting the existence and location of a pedestrian crossing, and at the same time measure the width of the road to the nearest step and detect the color of the traffic lights.
The research by Tadayoshi Shioyama and Mohammad Uddin from the Kyoto Institute of Technology appears in Nov. 19 issue of the journal Measurement Science and Technology published by Britain's Institute of Physics.
