Rapid technological advancements provides a plenty of products to help visually impaired people. In this work we propose a Vision system to guide visually challenged to pick up ingredients from rack, which aids a visually impaired to identify an object in self and guide them towards the object with an audio feedback system. Our system which acts as a personal helping hand for the user thus reducing the visually impaired user’s reliance on other people, especially with strangers when in a new environment. The proposed system implemented in three steps. First, Identification of self and detecting object present on self. Followed by in second step, Calibration of self, it calibrates user to an accessible distance from the shelf and to center of the frame. Finally, it guides user towards the recognized object with an audio feedback system. This approach is tested in an ideal environment with varied illumination and we used a shelf with three containers. © 2017, Institute of Advanced Scientific Research, Inc. All rights reserved.
