The persons who are paralyzed dependent on others due to loss of self-mobility. The main objective was to design and build a cheap, intuitive and practical powered wheelchair. The proposed system presents a user-friendly human machine interface (HMI) for hands-free control of an electric powered wheelchair (EPW). Its two operation modes are based on Mode 1 four head movement through accelerometer, and Mode 2 voice command through speech recognition in MATLAB. Proposed Wheelchair can also detect the slope elevation and accordingly control the speed which helps to avoid the accidents.
