Smart Shoe


This project describes an efficient methodology for aiding the blind and the visually impaired in their navigation and also people in danger. The project is basically a pair of shoes along with a mobile. It works in three modes in a domestic environment. Track manager mode in which the mobile uses navigation system through GPS and guides the user. These devices are connected to the microcontroller fitted in the shoes. It employs an obstacle detection unit using infrared sensors for the visually impaired. The third feature is the safety system in which the user, when in danger, can send its location to their guardians through impact mechanism on the shoes. The project utilizes a controller, a Bluetooth module, relay, a motor, a vibrator and a buzzer. There are also some software requirements for the development of the application and designing the PCB layout. The best advantage of this system is that it needs no additional huge device to be carried along and it also doesn’t need any special training as the input output system is very simple.
