ROSHNI - Device to Help Visually Challenged Reach destination A
Project done by Students of IEC, Greater Noida

Roshni is a portable & self contained system which uses auditory outputs for providing indoor directions to blind. The system consists of a user module and a network of wall mounted units spaced at distanced intervals. User module is a waist worn device comprising of receiver for detecting user movement and a user interface in the form of a mobile phone application. Each wall mounted units emits a unique identification tag that is associated with a location on the digital map of the building. By turning on the device the user can obtain directions to any desired location on the map from current position. As the user moves in the building the waist worn module updates the position of the user. The navigation information is conveyed to the user acoustically using the text- to- speech engine of the mobile. This System is installed in Bharti building IIT Delhi and undergoing user evaluation. The team has already developed an android app named ROSHNI Students of IEC, Abhinav Saksena & Akash Gautam from EC & EI branch is working on the improvement of this project. These students of IEC are doing the project under the guidance of Prof.M.Balakrishnan, Head Assistive Technology Group IIT Delhi.Mr.Druv Jain , Research Associate is the initiator of this project.
