1. Abstract Nowadays,
systems are used in a wide range of our lives. Therefore, we can not imagine our lives without IT and communication systems. From this point we got an idea to build an e-glass which utilizes of an embedded system and neural networks, however, this e-glass could be used by the blinds to assist them in their ways without
persons. It is important to note that the hardware and software components of the e-glass are not expensive. When this class is used by the blinds it will make them self
confidence, let them walk independently and increase their morality. 诲瞬

2. Introduction The idea of building an e-glass it will be treated as a first step in using the technology
replaceable part of the damaged human neural system; this will help to make the life easier for the blinds.
The proposed e-glass works through an electronic circuit to scan and collect information about the entire object which could be found in front of the blind, then it will analyse these objects to give a voice command to the blind to keep away from these obstacles (objects).
3. General View of the E-Glass
develop the embedded electronic circuit programs to receive the neural flows from
This e-glass works through the ultra
the human brain and use the pattern
sonic waves by sending radar signals for
recognition to analyse the objects as
distance from 2 meter to 50 meters and
120 degrees as a vertical and horizontal cover angle along with 60 degrees to
4. How the E-Glass Works?
cover the right and left, as a result, in total the cover angle will be 270 degrees.
4.1 First phase: putting the receiver
Therefore, after receiving the information
(radar) on the glass and analysing all the
from the radar system, they will be
data which are collected from the radar,
analyzed in the artificial intelligence
this analysis could be done through the
software and produce a warning about
first electronic circuit programs, then an
electronic signal will be sent to the
electronic warning and alarming device (the headphone).
One of the characteristics of this e-glass is that it can identify any small object with
4.2 Second phase: the electronic signal
a 2 cm2 area or more from 2 meters
will be sent from the first electronic circuit
to the second electronic circuit which has the artificial intelligence system to give a
As a future work, this e-glass could be
scaled warning based on the dangerous

within the cars. In addition, we can
