Abstract:
    E-shoe assists the visually impaired person in navigating his way and avoiding obstacles through a blue tooth earpiece.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    An Eshoe is the only shoe designed to give confidence to the visually impaired specifically blind people to move around in the society with confidence. Al Shifa Trust Eye Hospital and AFIO, the specialists came to the conclusion that there should be something to replace the white cane
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Visually impaired people with night blindness, Retinitis pigmentosa, legally blinds can use these shoes. Around 1,140,000 blinds are in Pakistan. 253 million people globally, live with vision impairment. Blinds are reluctant to use white cane because it marks their disability.
How will the solution works
    It is an IoT device that will use a GSM module and a distance meter. We have found a compact device by the name of surrili which has the module and arduino too. We have made the obstacle avoidance meter that will avoid the run time traffic and the voice recognition system will tell the person in his ear about the navigation. A synchronized account of the relative can get the exact location of the person and can help him if he is stuck at some place. Extra features can also be added.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    This is the first of its kind in Pakistan. In India there is one by the name of LeChal. Our idea has an app with navigation and tracking features and a bluetooth earpiece for the comfortability of the person.
