This report describes an embedded system which is purposely developed for helping blind people and people which have very critical visual impaired. It is called (MOD) mobile obstacle detector. Theproject is focusing on helping those people in detecting obstacle in front of them. The project objective is to build one simple device that can easily handle by blind people and people with visual impaired to detect any obstacles in front of them. The device will be designed with button as ON/OFF button. Userjust needs push one buttonandthen use it like we use torchlight. The device has a capability to detect any obstacle and warn user about the obstacle. Before user hit the obstacle the device will warn and alert the user about the obstacle so user can more alert and avoid the obstacle. The concept is like using torchlight so it provides freestyle handling with unlimited pointing. For normal people they use torchlight to see in dark situation. Same goes to blind people, they can't see, but with this device the obstacle can be detect and user will be warned. The device will use ultrasonic transducer as a sensor and PIC16F877A microcontroller will do the computation. Hopefully, this device will help those people and brings a lot ofbenefits to them.
