Abstract

Moving just with the stick is a very difficult task for the visually challenged unless they have a smart way to walk. This stick is to provide them a different walking experience. The design is made with Ultrasonic sensor, with water detection and Infra-red modules. The ultrasonic range finders help in detecting obstacles. Infra-red module is included to warn the user of location of stick if forgotten or lost with the help of beeps and message. This work explains about the setup we used for the smart stick, design details and results of the measured parameters.
