Till date blind people struggle a lot to live their miserable life. Their problems have made them to lose their hope to live in this competing society. They seek help from others to guide them whole day. This project aims to make the blind person fully independent in all aspects. The proposed system is based on “Programmable Gate Arrays (PGA) and Detectors”. This constitutes a virtual eye which communicates to the outside surrounding through a camera. The camera acts as a constant source of information to the system. The data received through the sensors and cameras located in legs and on the head respectively. The received signals from the input devices are processed by gate arrays located in the main processing unit that responds to the blind person through speech processing units. The processed information about surroundings will be informed through the headset (output unit) by which blind people can move and make their work easily on their own. If the person suffers from additional disability, being deaf as well. Then small vibrators can be placed on his legs, based on vibrations he can move safely.
