##Guide stick for the visually impaired
This project aims to be a tool for the visually impaired to gauge obstacles in the vicinity and provide appropriate feedback using Ultrasonic technology and vibration motors/voice aid.
Additionally, an accelerometer and a Bluetooth module is integrated with the guide stick to enable communication to the user’s mobile phone to provide tracking and emergency alerts.
The user’s mobile phone, connected to the Bluetooth module on the guide stick which is fit with an accelerometer which detects shakes and angle of stick (i.e.; emergency, which can be over-ridden), thus sending appropriate control signal to the app on the phone. The app then sends an SMS notification to a selected contact with the GPS coordinates of the user, which can then be tracked.
