SIoT (Social Internet of things), as the name suggests, is the social network of things. SIoT could be useful in providing social help in healthcare industry. This paper describes how it can be used for the social well-being of the people with disabilities (PwD). A particular scenario for the blind persons has been taken into consideration, that is, how to ease the travelling for blinds, especially in crossing a traffic light. The main focus is to make them walk and travel independently without the help of others. A traffic light crossing (TLC) algorithm has been proposed to help the visually challenged persons to cross the traffic light in IoT Network. In this chapter, different computing types for IoT and tools supporting have also been discussed.
