Visually impaired people and elders face difficulties in abstaining from obstacles and discerning hazards because of the inadequacy of information for staying out of harm’s way in their everyday routine. They have insufficient knowledge about some of the things like self- velocity, the velocity of moving objects, proximity of living beings, dangerous gases and so on. Therefore, we contemplate developing an electronic system that inherently contains various modules for various functions like obstacle detection module, a fall detection module, navigation module and also Alert system. This design is developed using NI myRIO, which will be mounted on a walking stick that abets the holder to be connected with his/her family. While the obstacle detection module employs a set of ultrasound sensors, PIR sensor, and an alarm system to guide the carrier, the fall detection is primarily achieved by a 3-axis accelerometer which is an inbuilt function in myRIO. The hazard detection module is used to detect the harmful gases and fire in both indoor as well as outdoor environments and alerts the user. The user can intimate to his/her family member in hazard situations using the SOS button. The navigation module can send the GPS location of the carrier which is acquired from this module and send it to a particular mobile number or mail.
