Voice Controlled Smart Wheelchair

Author(s): Neema, R & Rajkumar, R.

This project extends the functionality of wheelchair, the way it is used and also the advance technology associated with it. Disabled and elderly individuals, mostly use the wheelchair to move from one point to another. To make their life somewhat simpler, numerous improvements in wheel seats came into existence, for example, electric-controlled, motion-based, and so forth. The system has two segments, specifically; hardware and programming. The hardware contains an embedded structure that relies upon Arduino Uno board, a Bluetooth Module, Motor Driver and an Android phone. The Bluetooth Module gives the correspondence media between the customer through the android phone and the system through voice request given to the android phone. The customer discusses the ideal request to the item application presented in the android phone that is connected through Bluetooth with Bluetooth Module HC05. The voice is changed over to an assortment of strings and the string is passed to Arduino Uno related with it. At the point when the Bluetooth Module gets the message, the request sent will be removed and executed by the microcontroller associated with it and depending upon the orders dealt with to the Motor Driver, the motors will work properly. The system will translate the orders and control the Wheelchair similarly through the android application.
