Abstract
This paper describes cost-effective smart Stick using IoT (Internet of Things) for blind or visually impaired people. These people find difficulties in detecting obstacles near them, while they are out from their home all alone, which is very dangerous to them. This smart Stick comes as a proposed solution to enable them to identify the objects (water, fire, puddles, stairs, etc.). In this paper we propose a solution, represented in a smart Stick with ultrasonic sensors to detect stairs, walls and nearby objects in front of the user, within a maximum range of 3 meters. Moreover, another a water sensor is placed at the bottom of the Stick to detect water and puddles. Infrared fire sensor is attached, so that if the pole (stick) comes near to the fire, it will detect it and will produce a warning buzzer tone. A camera has been set with this Stick which enables the user's friends or family members to get the access where the person is going and can also track him/her using IP address of the camera. This proposed system uses the Arduino UNO board. This Stick gives a suitable message to the blind person as well as his/her family members or friends, empowering him/her to move twice the normal speed as he/she feels safe. It is cheap, fast in response, low power consumption and can be easily be operated by a battery or power bank.
