Mobile application to assist the visually impaired

The visually impaired face daily challenges. My idea could record the daily routes visually impaired undertake. It would remember how many steps it takes to a traffic signal or crossing or roadway. The app would alert the user by earphones and assist in navigating the urban streets to avoid hazards. The app would report any hazards and data to local government or relevant road authority to improve the safety along footpaths or roads. The app would need to be designed to have voice recognition and motion detection to allow users to report the hazards or challenges. This app would be beneficial to local government to gain a better understanding for the needs of the visually impaired.
