Technology holds significant value for supporting visually impaired people in experiencing cultural heritage. Creating tactile adaptions of artifacts or paintings is a challenging task that comprises the need for a careful surface design, a good choice of material and interaction design sensible to the needs and abilities of the target ...

For blind and visually impaired people, tactile reliefs offer many benefits over the more classic raised line drawings or tactile diagrams, as depth, 3D shape and surface textures are directly perceivable. However, without proper guidance some reliefs are still difficult to explore autonomously. In this work, we present a gesture-controlled ...

A Roadmap in Digital Heritage Preservation on 3D Research Challenges in Cultural Heritage - Volume 8355
Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York, Inc.
Additive manufacturing, if seconded by a paradigm change to the museum model, can be employed in many ways to reintegrate touch, and other non-retinal senses into our cultural experiences. These multi-sensorial forms of experiencing culture also have a great benefit for the accessibility of cultural heritage, especially for persons with ...

Publisher: IEEE Computer Society
In the context of computational acoustics, a detailed evaluation of various 3-D scanning methods for the purpose of capturing the geometry of the human pinna (the visible part of the ear) is presented. Over 80 full 3-D scans of the head and ears of three subjects were performed with six ...

Computer-aided tools offer great potential for the design and production of tactile models. While many publications focus on the design of essentially two-dimensional media like raised line drawings or the reproduction of three-dimensional objects, we intend to broaden this view by introducing a taxonomy that classifies the full range of ...

The aim of this work is to bring the cultural heritage of two-dimensional art closer to being accessible by blind and visually impaired people. We present a computer-assisted workflow for the creation of tactile representations of paintings, suitable to be used as a learning tool in the context of guided ...

This paper describes a new method for matching line segments between two images in order to compute the relative camera pose. This approach improves the camera pose for images lacking stable point features but where straight line segments are available. The line matching algorithm is divided into two stages: At ...
