I want to create an android app where a live camera stream captures obstacles on the ground and issues warnings to the user. This is intended as an application for the visually impaired.

I'm at a loss to understand what technologies are most suitable for this as I have no previous experience in image processing. I looked through some OpenCV examples, but they didn't provide me with much insight as to where to start the project from.

What I need to know is;

  1. Any tutorials that might help me to get started on the project (should I start with basic image processing?)
  2. Should I learn C++, since I only know java and C#?
  3. What technologies that could be used in the project. (Is it possible to achieve something like this through Augmented Reality etc..)
  4. Any previous projects/ tutorials/ examples that tries to achieve android image processing

If you could provide me with some answers to any of the above points I'd be much grateful.

You'll have to use an Neural Network to identify the images, I think it's the only decent way of doing it.

This is a nice and simple tutorial wich may help you:
