This Application enhances MATLAB for blind people in shopping malls with voice and image transmission. It is mainly designed to get the voice and image information of a particular object or product using MATLAB technology and android applications. Here in shopping malls we use this application to get the information quickly. In this section we have a web camera that is used to scan the different objects available in the malls. If an object is near the reader, the image will be scanned. Such information is delivered by the microcontroller to the Bluetooth module and is transmitted to Bluetooth incorporated into the mobile phone. The specific-object based knowledge or an application is opened on the android device. The smart phone shows the picture and details related to that item, and the same text will also be displayed on the mobile phone. Hence by using this project blind people can easily get the data or information that we want.
