Abstract:

In this research work, we present a Bluetooth-based wheelchair which can be controlled by finger or hand gesture using an Android application developed by us installed in smart gadget. The device helps those deprived of motion in their day to day activities. Even though there is a tremendous leap in this field, there are no facilities for the user to control the wheelchair with less strain on their hands. So this prototype will be a great help for the differently abled users as they can control the wheelchair by just moving their fingers or hands on the touchscreen. The prototype can be varied between touch and swipe. In some cases, the differently abled might not be able to control their fingers. In such cases, since Bluetooth is used, a second person can control the motion rather than pushing it.
