Smart-Cane for The Blind with A Sensor Detection Approach

Rahmat Tullah, Syaipul Ramdhan, Reza Nabili Akbar, Fahmi Yusuf


Not all humans are created with normal eyes. Blindness is not only interfered with daily activities but also has socio-economic impacts on the environment, society, and the country. Those who have visual impairment usually have difficulty when walking and doing activities, while they still generally use traditional and manual walking sticks to help them. This research aims to help blind people carry out activities and improve facilities to use more sophisticated technology. The method used in this study is to use the prototype method. It is a process where simple modeling allows visually impaired people to have a primary picture of the program and conduct initial testing on tools, and facilitate the blind to interact with each other during the manufacturing process so that developers can easily model the software to be made. The results of this study constructed an automatic stick that can detect obstructions in front and top and detect puddles using a buzzer as a notification if the tool detects a barrier object. With seven tests using different materials, the average front sensor error value is 0.68%, the sensor works well, with two testing trials using other materials the average sensor error value is above 0.95% and can detect water in front of the tool user.
