Eye Assistant

This project will help blind people to know the presence as well as the direction of obstacles and road condition while moving in roads. If they are in some trouble they can send notifications through that as well.

HSTU Matroid

Our project is for the blind people. We developed a project for their assistance. Our project is a device which will be used as a cap. Blind people will wear that on the head and they will wear two hand gloves in both hands. We've installed vibration system in those gloves. After wearing that device on the head, if any obstacle will come towards them, they will get notification through that vibration system installed in the gloves. They will not only get to know that some obstacle is around them but also they will be able to know that in which direction that obstacle is. Direction of obstacle will be notified through some vibrating pattern combinations of vibrators. The extra feature we want to add that we want to give a emergence button in the gloves. When the blind man gets into some trouble then by pressing that notifications will be sent to some selected contacts. Another problem faced in this project that if any road is not in proper shape or it’s broken the how he will get to know. We’ve found a solution on that. By using image processing technology, it can be solved mostly.
