Indoor Environment Navigation for Blind with Voice Feedback

Parimal A. Itankar, Prof. Hirendra R. Hajare , , ,
BIT Ballarpur Gondwana University ,India

this paper presents assistive system for visually impaired with voice feedback which focuses on independent movement of blind people who suffer in an unknown environment with no assistance. This system has Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) for the path guidance identifying certain paths for the navigation which give features such as location identification. This proposed system on the user side include a RFID reader module with an integrated microcontroller, zigbee transceiver for transmitting the tag’s information and for playing information to the blind person were on the server side zigbee transceiver for communication. For the direction identification technique, RFID passive tag is employed on the path and for location recognition required tools and r building will be embedded with passive RFID tags. A data unique to each object and path location is on the server. The RFID reader reads the RFID tags and transmits the data by Zigbee to the server PC which in turn locates for the received Tag ID in the database and gives respond to the user with its identification data which is played at the blind person side by converting it from text to speech with the help of SAPI module.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
