This paper reports on a study that helps visually impaired people to steer uncountable confidently. The study hypothesizes that a Wise Cane that alerts visually impaired people about obstacles before might facilitate them in walking with less accident. The white cane, because of its primitive vogue, is unable to produce the blind and visually impaired level of independence that is possible with stylish technology. The aim of the paper is to handle the event work of a cane, which is able to communicate with the users through sound alert, and vibration, that is mentioned as ‘Wise/Smart Cane’. The event work involves writing and physical installation. A series of test unit is distributed on the wise cane and the results are mentioned. This study found that the Wise Cane functions well as meaning, in alerting users about the obstacles before.
