A smart mobile audio-guide

supported by: Regione Toscana

Our smart audio guide perceives the context and is able to interact with users: it performs automatic recognition of artworks, to enable a semi-automatic interaction with the wearer. The system is backed by a computer vision system capable to work in real-time on a mobile device, coupled with audio and motion sensors. The system has been deployed on a NVIDIA Jetson TK1 and a NVIDIA Shield Tablet K1, and tested in a real world environment (Bargello Museum of Florence).
