Abstract

Low limb impaired patients experience difficulties in doing their daily activities. The smarter solution to this concept is Smart Wheelchair. The proposed system is a robotic wheelchair that can be commanded by patient himself/herself. This system provides flexibility to choose different modalities to command the wheelchair, in addition to be suitable for people with different levels of disabilities. Patient can command the wheelchair with their eye blinks, eye and head movements and through brain signals. The wheel chair can also be operated like an auto-guided vehicle or in an autonomous way. The system provided with an easy to use and flexible graphical user interface onboard a personal digital assistant, which is used to allow users to choose commands to be sent to the robotic wheelchair. Several experiments were carried out with people with disabilities, and the results validate the developed system as an assistive tool for people with distinct levels of disability.
