Slippers are essential objects for elderly people to move in their home life and community activities, and wearing modified slippers can prevent falls down and guide directions. General slippers cannot provide the wearer in the night environment to find a way. Smart slippers can provide inductive lights and lighting functions, assisting the wearer to orient the position of the slipper in the night environment, providing the wearer lighting guidance in poor lighting environment. The wearer may not get up in time to turn on the lights at night or poor vision problems, and smart slippers can reduce the risk of falling effectively and confirm the direction of action.
