The motivation behind VOICE CONTROLLED WHEELCHAIR USING ANDROID TECHNOLOGY project is to build an automated wheelchair that helps the physically disabled peoples to locomote from one place to another. As we know that many wheelchairs are available with different running technologies, but the cost is very high and it is not much effective. Mostly, the idea of building VOICE CONTROLLED WHEELCHAIR is to overcome some disadvantages of the existing systems. The wheelchair is controlled with the help of an android mobile application. The purpose of selecting the Android platform is that nowadays Android mobile phones are commonly used. The user has to first get connected with the wheelchair with the help of the application. The user then has the GUI to control the wheelchair. This system allows the user to robustly interact with the wheelchair at different levels of the control (turn left, turn right, go ahead, go back and stop) and sensing. This project uses Arduino kit Microcontroller circuit and DC motors to create the movement of the wheelchair and Ultrasonic Sensors to detect the hurdles in between wheelchair and the way of direction.
