Abstract :

Visually impaired people find difficulties detecting obstacles in front of them, during walking in the street, which makes it dangerous. The project concept is to provide a smart electronic aid for the blind people. The system is intended to provide overall detection, real-time assistance through Global Positioning System (GPS). To aid the blind, the proposed solution is a smart stick with an infrared sensor to detect stair cases, a pair of ultrasonic sensors to detect any other obstacles in front of the user within a range of four meters. The ultrasonic sensors are placed at different heights to detect obstacles at different heights. Also, another sensor is placed at the bottom of the stick for the sake of avoiding puddles. The aim of the overall system is to provide a low cost and efficient navigation aid for blind which gives a sense of artificial vision by providing information about the environmental scenario of static and dynamic objects around them.
