Abstract

Even though many visually impaired people have a desire to exercise, they often cannot because they don’t have enough time or facilities. Based on this background, we developed an exercise support system that the visually impaired can use by themselves at home. However, previous systems require a dedicated stationary bicycle that we can’t obtain anymore. Therefore, we developed a new system using Kinect v2, which renders dedicated stationary bicycles obsolete, and any stationary bicycle can be used. We experimentally evaluated our system and described our conclusions.
