i-Cane: smart navigation for the visually impaired

Arko Ghosh, Florida, USA 13-15

In this project, I designed and developed an intelligent cane device (i-Cane) that enables a visually impaired person to navigate his or her environment. It detects objects along the path of the visually impaired person, measures the distance of the objects from the person, identifies the objects, and uses voice to communicate to the person about the approaching obstruction, the type of objects obstructing the path, and the distance of the objects from the person.
