Proximity Sensor Doorknob / Doorknob

Proximity Sensor Doorknob
Proximity Sensor Doorknob

Some unexpected accidents like fire and terror can take place on a building. Non-disabled people can escape from the building quickly through the emergency exit by themselves. However, it’s hard for blind people to do so. I suggest a product which could help them in this emergency. Proximity Sensors are usually located on the car bumper and beep harder when the car gets closer to the obstacles so that it can avoid them. So, I have come up with an idea of doorknob with Proximity Sensor. It’s designed to beep harder when blind people walk closer to the door, so it helps them to escape.
