Wheelchair is used by people who cannot movefrom one place to another on their own. Thi s may be due to theirillness or disability. As per Census 2011, there are over 27 million (2.7 Crore) people with disabilities out of which 5.4 million or 54 lakhs (54,36,826) have disability in movement in India. A small fraction of these have access to Wheelchairs i.e. around 80,000 to 1,60,000people use wheelchair in India. This paves way for this project as a lot of disabled people require access to a wheelchair with a control of their own. This project is to provide the user a full control for the wheelchair with the help of flex sensors.These sensors take input from the user in the form of finger gestures and they drive the motor, which helps the wheels to move in the requireddirection.The required components such as Atmega32 microcontroller, L293D motor driver and LCD display and LEDs display the current status of thewheelchair.
