Voice Based Navigation System for the Blind People

Authors(2) :-N. Vijayalakshmi, K. Kiruthika

This main aim of this project to provide voice-based navigation system for blind people using voice recognition module and it is intended to provide overall measures object detection and real time assistance via Global Positioning System (GPS) and ultrasonic sensors. This project aims at the development of an Electronic Travelling Aid (ETA) kit to help the blind people to find obstacle free path. This ETA is fixed to the stick of the blind people. When the object is detected near to the blinds stick it alerts them with the help of vibratory circuit. The blind person will give the destination’s name as the input to voice recognition module. GPS module continuously receives the latitude and longitude of the current location. GPS compares it with the destination’s latitude and longitude. The blind person receives the pronounced directions which he needs to follow to reach his destination.
