Innovative Approach For Physically Challenged People
This system is an implementation of wireless navigation system, which is a demonstration of a wheelchair
which works on the inputs such as gesture and voice commands via an android phone and navigates according to command
by wirelessly. It can be used by a physically challenged or aged person, they can move anywhere without any difficulty. The
elders and the physically challenged people find it hard to move the wheelchair without help of other person. By making use
of this system, the physically challenged person can move to different locations in the particular house or at outside of home
may be on road, at park, just by pronouncing the direction name or by making the movement of the android phone they will
be provided with. Our system is also equipped with obstacle detection and avoidance technique, where the person may not
