This paper reviews the proposal for a design of a wearable that describes the basis of a glove intended to help visually impaired people in their day-a-day activities. It uses wearable technology, such as sensors and actuators, that alert the user in case of an encounter with an obstacle in two directions (according to the position of the hand), and the proximity to a desired destination. In the first section, the introduction behind this proposal is explained, taking into account the only first poll from the region in question. The second section presents the background taking into account similar endeavors. The third section presents mechanical, electrical and control requirements. The fourth section details the solution design of the wearable, introducing the sensors and electronic devices that conform it. The fifth section will display the functionality and the tests, including control design to take into consideration for this proposal. Finally, the conclusions drawn through this experience will be displayed in the last section.
