The students of Mechanical Branch of Government College of Engineering Nagpur developed a device that can help blind people to detect obstacles without the use of their stick which is formally known as white cane. The group comprising of Priyank Umratkar, Devashish Sontakke, Ameya Vyas and Akhilesh Chinchamalatpure ensured that the device which consists of an ultrasonic sensor can detect object or obstacle upto a distance of one metre which can be varied as per the requirement. When an obstacle upto a distance of one metre is detected the buzzer is triggered which in turn gives the indication to the user about proximity to an obstacle. The ultrasonic sensor being mounted on top of servo motor allows the sensor to scan the surrounding at different angles. They further added that instead of using a conventional lithium ion battery, a solar panel can also be used ; a move that can eliminate the problem of periodic charging of battery. They further claimed that the components can be compactly placed around the glove as well which could ease up the use of it.
Four faculties along with students have completed task based training and GCOE Nagpur won ‘B’ category prize of Rs 4000/- from IIT Mumbai. In addition to it faculties developed content-6 of e-Yantra Resource Development Center and Received Honorarium of Rs. 7000/- for developing question bank and lab exercise on Image Histogram in Python.
