Mudra-Hand Gesture Based Wheelchair Navigation

This project is to create an impact on the level of independence of people with disabilities. To ease the lives of those among us who are unfortunate enough to have lost the ability to move their limbs due to stroke, (SCI – Spinal Cord Injury), old age and other disabilities (SSEP Group), Mudra is the perfect solution. Conventional control mechanism, joy stick, is not suitable for SSEP group of people as the joy stick requires the user to hold it and exert some force.
