Abstract

One of the most important senses possessed by the human species is vision. From the survey of WHO, 39 million people are blind all over the world. It is a quite miserable statement. The main problem for visually impaired people is their navigation and movement. Currently used ways by blind people to overcome this problem are by using a white cane and specially trained dogs, but it requires proper maintenance and high cost. This project works by detecting an obstacle and alerting the person. A key feature of this project is alerting the person by audio assistance. There will be recorded instruction audio files. Based on the obstacle’s height and width sensed by the device, appropriate audio will be sent to the end-user using a mesh network for communication. By implementing this project, blind people can understand and think about what kind of obstacle it is, its size, and the distance between the obstacle and that person. It is compact and easy to carry, does not create any kind of disturbance to the environment and surrounding people.

Keywords: Visually impaired; Blind; Mesh network; Audio assistance; White cane.
