Story

What is your worst nightmare? An injury? A fall? Complete darkness? Ever been to a place so dark you can't make out anything?  For some people, it's reality.

Each one of us has tried to imagine what it's like to be blind. But we can never come close to it. To eliminate color, sights, written characters, or any visual from our lives, would be devastating. But for some, it isn't a choice. A congenital disability, an accident, has left them blind for life.

Every routine task, every step a blind person takes, is a struggle. They could trip, run into a vehicle, or gravely injure themselves. A blind person is dependent on someone to show them the way, which leaves them feeling like a burden on their loved ones.


A smart blind  stick is a boon for the blind. Smart Blind stick is an innovative stick designed for visually disabled people for improved navigation. The blind stick will be integrated with ultrasonic sensor along with light and water sensing. Our proposed project will make use of ultrasonic sensors to detect obstacles ahead using ultrasonic waves. If the obstacle is close the microcontroller sends a signal to sound a buzzer. It will also detect and sounds a different buzzer if it detects water and alerts the blind. We are also planning to use Speech warning messages and the vibration motor are activated when any obstacle is detected.The system has one more advanced feature integrated to help the blind find their stick if they forget they kept it. A wireless RF based remote is used for this purpose. Pressing the remote button sounds a buzzer on the stick which helps the blind person to find their stick. Thus this system allows for obstacle detection as well as finding stick if misplaced by visually disabled people. We will also make use of GSM technology to send a message to family member, in case the blind person needs immediate help.
