Abstract:

This paper intends to explain various gesture recognition methods that are employed in wheelchair used for navigation and that is affordable by the people in developing nations. The need for assistive navigation technologies for elderly has increased due to the modern life style and nuclear family. Moreover navigation using a manually operated wheelchair, which is common in use, is difficult for people with arms or hand impairments. The technology must enable the user to gain a level of independence at least in day to day activities. © Research India Publications.
