Engineering students in Bengaluru develop robotic walking stick for blind people
Young Indians are smart innovators with bright minds and great ideas.
One such team of young students has developed a robot which acts as a smart stick to assist the people who are visually impaired and blind.
The six legged robot cum walking stick has been made by the students of Sapthagiri College of Engineering in Bengaluru.
The robot can be operated through a smartphone via internet connection.
The device has unlimited range and can also be used in rescue operations. It also features such as live streaming feature, 360-degree movable camera, and sensors for temperature or obstacles.
The robot can move all directions at two different speeds and can be used by the blind people for navigation.
The device has a unique feature - the sounds produced by the stick are different for objects in the way and water on the roads. This can help the blind people to walk safely around potholes and other obstacles in their way.
