Author : Gaurav Kumar 1 Seema Nayak 2 Kishan Kumar 3 Jwala Prakash 4

Date of Publication :16th September 2021

Abstract: This paper represents a new prototype of a smart eye glasses that can help a visually challenged person to recognize the person in front of him and learn about obstacles ahead.This will be enabled by face recognition and distance detection features.This prototype consist of Raspberry pi2 as the heart of processing, raspberry pi 2 camera, ultrasonic sensor, 5V power supply and a pair of glasses. Experiment results demonstrate that the prototype is working as intended.
