Improved content aware scene retargeting for retinitis pigmentosa patients (2010)

Author(s): Al-Atabany W, Tong T, Degenaar P

    Abstract: In this paper we present a novel scene retargeting technique to reduce the visual scene while maintaining the size of the key features. The algorithm is scalable to implementation onto portable devices, and thus, has potential for augmented reality systems to provide visual support for those with tunnel vision. We therefore test the efficacy of our algorithm on shrinking the visual scene into the remaining field of view for those patients.
