Abstract
Independence is the building methodology in achieving dreams, goals and objectives in life. Visually impaired persons find themselves challenging to go out independently. This project hypothesizes a smart cane that alerts visually impaired people over obstacles that could help them in walking with less accident and its objective is to address the development work of a cane that could communicate with the person through voice alert and vibration. Recently, there are many Electronic Travel Aids (ETAs) devices with advanced technology and computer vision system are introduced to assist the visually impaired for safe and independent walking.To overcome the limitations, a portable smart cane is designed and developed to detect the obstacles in the path of visually impaired person. This project is designed with ultrasonic sensor to detect the obstacles and alert the blind person. Additionally heart beat sensor is provided to monitor the heart pulse of the person and whenever there is any abnormalities, location of user can be tracked and sent as message to the relatives using android application. Here guidance is provided as a voice playback to the user, using android application. Thus the user can independently navigate just using the voice commands provided by the device.An wireless module setup is provided in the places used by the person inorder to indicate the person is reached the specified place. Computer simulation is done to essence the performance of the system using proteus software. In case, the stick is lost it can be found using the cane detection device.
