Abstract

The paper represents a novel approach to overcome the major challenges face by blind and partially blind people to cross the road and read. The proposed voice stick used to cross the road and reach their destination without any support. It is introduced a new technique to read printed material using Android phone. Low cost able to serve as a smart blind stick being more efficient and helpful than the conventional one. This will assist the blind persons during the walk and provides an alarm if any hurdle is detected within the set range.

Keywords

Blind stick, large obstacle avoidances, Small Obstacle Avoidances.
