Blindness is the lack Smart of vision caused due to physiological or neurological factors resulting in visual disability. Blindness can be temporary or permanent, and partial or complete blindness causing a person to become dependent on others for help. Even disabled people want to be independent in today's world and do not want to seek help from others. Smart Blind Stick is an innovative device, which is an initiative to help blind people to resolve the problems faced by them in their daily life. Smart Blind Stick is a system device that incorporates several features, namely- obstacle detection, navigation, panic button, and moisture detector. The main objective of the device is to help blind people to walk with complete relief and self-dependency. The blind stick is integrated with three ultrasonic sensors, panic switch, navigation switch, Bluetooth and soil moisture detector, and Arduino UNO. The Smart Blind Stick automatically detects the obstacle in front of the person by use of sensors present in the systems; it also incorporates moisture detection at its bottom in order to detect the moisture of the soil or ground so that the person will be aware if it is feasible to walk on that particular ground.
