Walking Stick and ITS Important Features

Authors(3) :-Shallu Dhiman, Ramanpreet Kaur, C. K. Raina

In modern era everyone wants to be independent. Independence is the building methodology in achieving goals and objectives in life. The persons who are physically challenged also want to be self-dependent. He never wants to depend on others .There are millions of visually impaired or blind people in this world who are always need of helping hands. From many years white cane are used for navigation for blind people and later this white cane has been improved by remote sensors which helps these visually challenged people in every walk of their life. Blind people have to face many problems while walking on streets and on stairs with the white cane. Another technology improvement is the invention of electronic stick which makes blind people life more convienient.The main motive of this paper is to spread knowledge to the blind people about these inventions of technologies.
