Shoe-integrated sensor system to serve as a walking aid for visually impaired people

This shoe-integrated sensor system is supposed to serve as a walking aid for a person with impaired sight. It alerts the user about obstacles surrounding him. Based on the information received from multiple ultrasonic sensors attached to the shoes, an Arduino Mega 2560 board used in the project forms a virtual map of the surroundings. The user is alerted about any obstacle through a set of vibrating elements placed in the user’s trouser pockets.
