Presentation: 1:00-3:00 p.m., Kennedy Union Torch Lounge



Blind people are liable to get in contact with whatever obstacle which pass before them during walking, subjecting them to risk of injury caused from fall and it could also cause great damage to them. The aim of this project is to develop a smart cane with distance measurement system. The system is made up of an ultrasonic sensor as input and earphone as the output. Ultrasonic sensor is used to measure distance from the obstacle. Data is then sent to National Instrument Arduino UNO microcontroller for processing which later pro-duce voice for alerting the blond person as the output. Also, the system includes the GPS live locating system and guide the path for blind person. In general, the device will alert blind people of the obstacles through the audio output through which they can walk safely without any problem.
