Paper Abstract

The VIDET project aims to the design of a tactile vision substitution system for the visually impaired. An important enhancement would be color rendering. Here we face the possibility of conveying color information to the fingers by means of vibrations. Experiments on seeing and blind subjects confirm the validity of the idea.
