Calciamicus : Smart Shoes for Visually Impaired People

Authors(5) :-Prof. Muzaffar Khan, Shruti Chauhan, Sultan Ahmad, Pooja Thakre, Mayuri Raut

The purpose behind developing this project is to provide a cost effective solution to visually impaired people. Visually impaired people and blind people face many difficulties in independent mobility and navigation due to which they are unable to walk like normal people. Also their daily activities are hampered by their inability to adapt or accurate identification of their surroundings, which becomes the main reason of accidents, mishaps, falling off, getting lost in unknown areas etc. Our developed model will ensure the safety of visually impaired person by guiding him through areas whether known or unknown to him. This will be achieved through mini vibrators dedicated for each side of shoes, the Ultrasonic sensors (both on cap and shoe unit) used for Obstacle detection etc. The Microcontroller is the main control unit with Embedded Software design. The GPS (global positioning system) and GSM(global system for mobile communication) modules are also used to track the location of the blind person. These Smart Assistive Shoes would prove to be a new interface between the surrounding and the people who cannot see it.It will alert them of any kind of obstacle in their way and spot any small or big object without using their hands thus it would be surely a user friendly solution.
