Project name: Integrated Sonar Echo Eye (I.S.E.E)
There are many visually impaired people around the world. The project Integrated Sonar Echo Eye (I.S.E.E) aims to make navigation easy for them through the use of the eco-location. It consists of wearable spectacles that can detect obstacles through ultra sonic frequencies which alerts the user via audio ques fran embedded speaker. The users are thus warned of the impending collision, making it easy for them to evade the obstacle ahead of them.
The Integrated Sonar Echo Eye uses ultrasonic frequencies to detect obstacles and thus gives the feedback of an echo to the device which produces an audio warning to the user. The incorporation of Google maps and audio satellite navigation alerts onto the users mobile, will help the user be aware of their directions and their current place. This will assist the visually impaired to avoid collisions with obstacles on theirr paths as well as know their exact position.
