DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2022

Visual impairment is where the person either can’t see or his vision has weakened to large extent. There is no alternative technique for visually impairment, but to some extent it can be trim down with devices, smart sticks and sensors. Although many techniques are there for helping out through electronic travelling aid, cost effective and minimum hardware solution was the expectation by impaired. The device which can identify and classify the object ahead of impaired person is needed so that person can be prevented from the accident. In this paper, a unified model of YOLO (You Only Look Once) is used for detection of object ahead of camera. The proposed model is based on phenomena of detecting small object and good detection speed of yolov3 makes system more robust. Once detected, labeled objects name is converted from text to speech, so that blind person can be alerted from colliding with obstacles. This paper is one step in the direction to help them by exactly classifying, detecting and localizing target object along with providing voice based guideline. The proposed model has proved accuracy in many real time scenes.
