The Blindness is frequently used to describe severe visual deterioration with or without residual vision. According to WHO (World Health Organisation) 30Million people are blind. In India only 6.8 Million people are blind, 46.2 Million people have low vision and 5.3Million people are visually diminished. There is a great dependency for any type of movement or walking within area or out of the particular area, they use only their natural senses such as touch or sound for identification. To gift a simplified and independent life for blind person, this project proposed which is light weight , compact , cost efficient and easy to handle.
