Abstract: This paper deals with the work on creating a robot assisted navigation system for the visually impaired people. The ability to see is an important gift that helps human beings to live their everyday lives, but not all people are blessed with this ability. The normal blind navigation devices deals with on-body devices that the user must carry, but this paper is talking about is a small rover that can be held by the user using a hanlde. The device will contain a raspberry pi module for taking data from a camera on-board to see the environment and make object and obstacle detection. The 4-WD rover will be controlled by an Arduino device which will be connected to the mobile of the user via a Bluetooth module. The user just has to say the name of the location he needs to go to by opening an application, the rest of the routing and transport will be done by the raspberry pi and Arduino.
