Blindness is not a new phenomenon in the society. It is a condition of lacking visual perception and always described as severe visual impairment with residual vision. The legally blind people are those who have the visual acuity of 20/200 or (6/60). It means that a blind person needs to stand within 20 feet (6 meters) to see an object which someone with normal visual acuity can see from 200 feet (60 meters) away. The legally blind people has trouble seeing things which other people take for granted, like road signs, traffic lights, and so forth. They are more prone to falls and other accidents because they cannot clearly discern their surrounding environment. The visually challenged people or the blind people are always trying to adapt with the surroundings. However their life and activities are greatly restricted by loss of eyesight. Many people with serious visual impairments can travel independently, using a wide range of tools and techniques. They are taught how to travel safely, confidently, and independently in the home and the community. They can find the way easily if they are familiar with an environment or route. The most important mobility aid that used by them is a walking stick or also known as walking cane. The conventional walking stick employed by the visually challenged people is actually not efficient to detect the object in front of the user. They can only detect the object that is being hit by the walking stick
