Abstract :

- In this paper, we have presented the methodology of navigation for visually impaired using GPS and IR sensors entombed into the shoes. There are 285 million visually impaired people worldwide, out of which India has the maximum percentage of visually impaired. Around 80% of the visually impaired population in India live in low income settings. They don’t have reliable resources to travel around for their daily needs. This project aims at providing them self-reliant and independent source for navigation. A dedicated android application will be used to input the destination. This app will be connected to the GPS modules on each pair of the shoe which will also house vibrating motors. The shoes will vibrate whenever there is a turn. The IR Sensors will be used to protect the wearer from any object in the path
