Ohm P. Jodhani, Darshan K. Patel, Milan D. Mungara, Viraj K. Gandhi, Ashish M. Kothari


A development of an assistance system on a wheelchair for the physically challenged and handicapped people to compensate their needs of manoeuvrability. This Mobility Assistant accepts the input from the user and accordingly sends command to the wheelchair to traverse around the surrounding. The proposed system will sense the body movement of a person sitting on a wheelchair and then shifts the wheelchair suitably so that it moves towards the desired direction. Further the system can also be upgraded so that it can detect object and obstacle on the way and thus helps it by adding more safety.The system will be self-contained within the wheelchair so that it ensures maximum mobility.

Keywords: Camera module, Matlab, image processing, arduino uno
