Autonomous Navigational Platform for Elderly and Physically Challenged

School: School of Engineering

Project Incharge:Dr. Rajesh Kannan Megalingam
Autonomous Navigational Platform for Elderly and Physically Challenged

This project is about building automated wheelchair for the elderly and physically challenged. It takes any destination which lies within a particular mapped location as input, calculates the shortest path to that location, and takes the user to the destination without any external aid. The entire floor plan of the house is divided as grids and coordinates are identified. Two different implementation mechanisms are available: FPGA based VLSI implementation and Raspberry-Pi based Embedded System implementation. LARN algorithm – Location Awareness and Remembrance Navigation algorithm is designed using Djikstra’s shortest path algorithm to implement the auto-navigation functionality.
