    Abstract

    Whilst there are computer vision systems available which help severely visually impaired people safely navigate environments, there is no known commercially available system to assist the same people (or other potential beneficiaries) in locating everyday objects. This project presents a potential system to this end which makes use of a wheeled robot and mounted camera capable of navigating a physical space, recognising and then locating specified objects. It also goes on to propose some reasonable future developments which could build on top of the initial solution presented, in order to make it a fully feasible product for the market. Finally, there is also a strong emphasis on the low cost/affordable nature of the solution as this is believed to be important so that any potential benefits are spread to the many and not just the few who can afford the privilege.
