-As the technology is advancing day to day, the human machine interaction has become a must in our daily life. The interference has progressively become more important and advanced in order to ease the interaction process of the user and provide friendly operation. There are a few advanced technologies which are now accessible in the market to cater the needs, yet they have their own particular drawbacks, thus one of the efficient solutions is to use an embedded system. The primary objective of this work is to permit blind persons to explore autonomously in the outside and inside environment. Ordinary route navigational systems in the outdoor environment are expensive and its manufacturing is time consuming. Blind people are at extensive drawback as they regularly do not have the data which is required, while passing obstacles and dangers. They generally have little information about data such as land marks, heading and self-velocity information that is crucial for them to explore them through new environment. It is our conviction that advances in innovations could help and encourage these blind people in their regular operations. This work goes for giving the route to blind persons, by designing a cost – effective and more flexible navigation system. Here we are developing a navigation system that makes use of sounds in order to provide navigation instruction to the user. Thus, we are developing a system using GPS and RFID technology that will help blind people to move in an unfamiliar environment.
