Now-a-days there are many types of aids to the blind people in order to make their life easier. Blind people may face problems in some or the other way i.e. whenever they get lost in any place or met with an accident. To overcome such problems we turned up with a smart technical solution which helps the blind people to get identified easily to sense the obstacles in a smart manner. Blind stick consists of an Ultrasonic sensor, a GPS module and a GSM module. The sensor is used to indicate the person that obstacles are ahead of him. GPS module is used to indicate the location where as a GSM module is used for smart communication. This system is intended to provide overall measures and real-time assistance via GPS. The system consists of Ultrasonic sensor, GPS module, GSM 900 Module and Vibratory circuit (speakers or head phones). This project aims at the development of an Electronic Travelling Aid (ETA) kit to help the blind people to find obstacle free path. This ETA is fixed to the stick of the blind people. When the object is detected near to the blind person's stick, it alerts them with the help of vibratory circuit.
