Abstract: According to a research there are about 6 million populations in the world who are paralysed and needs a wheelchair for their mobility. Earlier the wheel chairs had to be moved and be externally supported by any person. To help overcome this “joystick-controlled wheelchairs” are developed. But in regular use, these joystick-controlled wheelchairs became difficult to use. Especially in the case of paralysed people, the use of joystick became more difficult due to the hard buttons and unidirectional use of the joysticks. To overcome these problems, we’ve tried to develop a “gesture-controlled wheelchair” which can be moved with a slight tilt of the hand. This can be used in both hands and can be controlled to come to the user from a distance. The current work is implemented with Arduino based devices such as Arsuino NANO and UNO processors and programmed through Arduino IDE.
