Unless you are the main character of the movie “Black”, your visual limitation would never be able to stop you going out to the malls or travel through train and doing other things just like normal people with SUAM, an innovative support system for universal mobility. This useful concept comprises two functional elements, one is an ergonomically curved handheld device that can scan the surroundings to locate and interact with the infra red emitters and another is a portable earpiece that can transform the infra red signals into audible messages and let the user know about his or her surroundings and directions to go. Among the system, the emitters are envisioned to be located at frequently visited spots like bathrooms, retail stores, offices, and many more. SUAM will be very much useful and functional for visual impaired people to perform the usual everyday tasks that other normal people are doing around.
