This paper describes a guidance system for blind and partially sighted people with the aim of coping in the known and unknown internal and external spaces without the assistance of human guides. This work represents a significant step forward in the application of innovative technological solutions to increase independence and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities. This paper describes the technical and functional architecture of the system for orientation and guidance of a blind person using available modern technology. Smart system for visually impaired, that make use of ultrasonic sensor as assistive devices. Visually impaired individuals find navigation difficult as they struggle every day in performing actions for bypassing obstacles and hurdles in their path. In order to help blind people navigate safely and quickly this system is proposed. This system is based on embedded technology. Ultrasonic sensor is placed on the stick which is used for obstacle detection. The project hypothesizes a smart walking stick that alerts visually-impaired people over ground level obstacles, in front which could help them
