Abstract

This study was conducted to design, develop and initially implement the Artificial Intelligence Blind Stick Using Image Processing Technique. Specifically, it identified the issues experienced in utilizing customary visually impaired stick for outwardly disabled individuals; proper highlights of the device that can be created to address the issues experienced, andthe respondents' degree of acknowledgment towards the created device in terms of operability, safety, and execution.The research used the qualitative-quantitative research method that utilized aresearcher-made questionnaire and interview questions. The respondents of the study were one (1) Ophthalmologist, five (5) visually impaired person’s relatives and fifty (50) visually impaired individual from different places.
The issues experienced in utilizing customary visually impaired stick for outwardly disabled individuals were mishap cause by hitting something delicate due to influencing or waving the visually impaired stick to recognize blocks ahead before making a stride toward whatever path, and number of mishaps picked up by the outwardly visually impaired individual due to utilizing manual visually impaired stick. The appropriate features of the instrument that can be created to address the issues experienced were: a contact less picture deterrent location framework that additionally suddenly recognizes block without a nonstop waving or influencing of the visually impaired stick; and a picture to speech converter instrument which changes over digital images to discourse language permitting outwardly disabled individual to walk securely is far more efficient than the manual process when it comes to obstacle detection, monitoring, and analysis. The respondents' evaluations for Artificial Intelligence Blind Stick Using Image Processing Technique were profoundly worthy with regards to operability, safety, and execution.Government authorities and professional agencies may suggest the use of the developed device to visually impaired individuals for the purposes of obstacle detection, safe travel, and path analysis.
