Physical movement is one of the biggest challenges for specially challenged people. Traveling or merely walking down a can be challenging. Because of this, such people will prefer to travel with a sighted friend or family member when navigating unfamiliar places. Our device basically is a navigational shoe which guides the user about the direction by haptic output. We use Arduino as microcontroller to interface with keypad. Two coin vibrating motors are used to provide haptic output and we made a sensor for step counting. RF transmitters and receiver is used to communicate between step counting sensor and Arduino. Firstly, we select the path using keypad. After that person starts walking and step counting sensor starts counting the steps. When there is a turn either motors start vibrating according to the turn. When the person reaches destination, both motors vibrates and after few second it stops. There is also a reverse route available in our model.
