Abstract: The disproportionate increase in the visual impairment among elderly is of great importance in the field of research. Some of the causes of visual acuity are Cataracts, Glaucoma, Age related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. These causes may cause more accidental issues in day today life. This paper conceptualizes a navigation guide using various sensors like GPS, INS and Infrared sensors along with optimal filtering algorithm. The IR sensor detects the obstacles whereas GPS and INS helps in navigating our loved ones to the destination address safely .This navigation system utilizes low cost sensors and can be modified to be embedded as a wearable device that can help visually challenged as a locomotion guide.
