Abstract

This paper presents automated mobility for visually impaired people which focuses on independent mobility of
visually impaired or blind people who suffer in an unknown environment without any manual assistance. This system employs
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to achieve an objective of identifying certain paths for the user navigation as well as
provide certain features such as object recognition, log records of all users’ tag access. This proposed system on the user
side include a mobile RFID reader module with an integrated microcontroller. In path identification technique, RFID passive
tag network is employed on the path and for object recognition required tools and other objects in the house or building will
be embedded with passive RFID tags. A text data unique to each object and path location, resides on the server. The reader
reads the tags and transmits the data wirelessly to the mobile which in turn scans for the received Tag ID in the database and
respond to the user with its related text data which is played at the user side .The mobile application helps to trace the exact
location of the person in the building. As an overall this system will help visually or mentally impaired person to gain the
feelings of visualization as well as it will also help us by giving the location of impaired person.
