 Abstract
In this paper, we propose a walking assisting system for blind people using Android smartphone and Arduino board. In our proposed system, we use an Android smartphone case and an external ultrasonic sensor to detect the obstacles ahead. In this manner, blind people is able to aware unexpected objects by smartphone speakers or vibration functionality. In addition, the walking assisting system is also designed a notice system which will be triggered by built-in smartphone camera flash when blind people walk in some darkness place. The experimental results from real experiments on blind people have demonstrated the applicability of our walking assisting system, when it not only efficiently helps blind people avoid obstacles ahead but also possible traffic collisions in darkness condition.
