As a student’s we work with our teacher, so we made a smart cane (MJF) that helped them to deal with the daily struggles and to solve their problems . By making a prototype for our project and it solved the following problems by these sensors: • water obstacles: by the water sensor that’s in the end of the cane. • Physical obstacles: by Ultra sonic sensor. • Darkness: by using light sensor to tell the blinds and the people surrounding them. • Privacy: by using motion sensor • If the cane got lost or stolen: we used GPS to find it. • The blind will receive voice commands through Bluetooth headphones • The batteries recharged by Solar cells or by using The charger.
