Smart Stick / It is for visually handicapped

Smart Stick

The blind always need to have a stick, but that stick is too simple. Most of the blind dissatisfied with the simple stick,
that stick inform only obstacles right before the blind.
So, we thought convenient and smart stick for them. we attached bluetooth and navigation system on new smart stick.
When the blind use this smart stick, that bluetooth and navigation system, can work automatically. That system is too sensitive. So that system can inform directions and the things which come from 5m in front of the blind to them. Then the blind don't need to use that long stick. They should have portable size smart stick.
