Abstract: One of the common problems faced by visually challenged people is their inability to travel alone in public transport services like bus. They have to depend on others to identify the bus at the bus stops. This scenario should be changed. It’s the role of engineers to bring the change in the lives of visually challenged people. A low cost bus alert system for visually challenged people using Radio Frequency (RF) technology is proposed in this paper. Once the appropriate bus arrives near the visually challenged person, he/she will be intimated about the arrival of the bus by an audio message. If the blind person decides to board the bus he can acknowledge the driver by pressing the acknowledgement button in his module. The bus driver will get acknowledged by LED indicator near his cabin. With the help of this project visually challenged commuters can transit without the aid of fellow commuters and their need to depend on others for public transport transit can be reduced.
