My Travel Mate is a smart audio guide that automatically provides the user information about the surrounding environment. The system, without any user interaction, builds a point of interest database exploiting Wikipedia and Google APIs as source. It leverages a computer vision system, to overcome the likely sensor limitations, and determines if the user is facing a certain landmark. After having automatically obtained information on the detected interest point, the guide presents audio description at the most appropriate moment, using text-to-speech augmenting the experience.View Project
