In this paper, we have developed a prototype mobile assistive device, which is able to solve the problem that visually impaired people faces every day. This device functions as assistive device for the visually impaired to navigate from one place to another especially while using public transport. In order to get transportation independently, the visually impaired use auditory touched clues like walking stick or white cane. The limitation of this device is that a visually impaired person must come into close proximity with their surroundings to determine the location of an obstacle. However, these devices can only assist the visually impaired at a pedestrian crossing. Therefore, we have developed an assistive device with an objective, for the visually impaired people to identify the vehicle, while using public transport. © Research India Publications.
