According to World Health Organisation (WHO) study, 90% of the info to the human brain is sent through eyes alone. The Study also says that there are about 285 million visually impaired or blind people across world. In this paper, we proposed an efficient, reliable and low-cost wearable jacket for the people suffering from visual impaired. A smart jacket is designed by embedding the sensor on the jacket, that enables the user to detect an obstacle and safely navigate. The prototype model has an accuracy of 98% for obstacle with in 200cm. The smart jacket requires low power hence can be used for real time navigation for visually impaired people.
