MULTISENSOR STRATEGIES TO SUPPORT BLINDPEOPLE: A CLEAR-PATH INDICATOR
The development of electronic sensing devices for the visuallyimpaired requires knowledge of the needs and abilities of this class of people. In this project we present a rough analysis that can be used toproperly define the criteria to be adopted for the design of suchdevices. In particular, attention will be focused on clear-pathindicators, highlighting their role in orientation and mobility tasks. Anew device belonging to this class is presented. The detector is basedon a multisensor strategy and adopts smart signal processing toprovide the user with suitable information about the position of objectshindering his or her path. Experimental trials demonstrate theefficiency of the device developed.
Project Description :
In this project of
“Multisensor Strategies to Support BlindPeople: A Clear-Path Indicator”
we propose a system which candetect obstacles for the blind people. In this new system we increasethe range of the operating device to about 40 to 240cm which ispossible only through obstacle Sensors. Here We are using ultrasonicsensor for detecting the obstacle. Ultrasonic Receiver is placed in thespectacle. And the transmitter placed in the walking stick. When theobstacle detect the receiver receives the signal from the transmitter.And indicate by voice. Two sensors are placed in the right and left sideof the stick. For any obstacle detected we warn the person throughVoice Board which gives warning for left and right side.
