Hand Gestures Controlled Intelligent Wheelchair with Device Switch

M Vishnu Vardhan, K Rishika Renita and S Harish Kumar


The main aim of this paper is to use accelerometer sensor (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) technology to operate a wheelchair. MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Sensors) are a type of accelerometer sensor. This sensor is extremely sensitive and capable of detecting movements. The movement is detected by this micro electro mechanical sensor. The accelerometer is used to modify the direction of the wheelchair based on tilt. As an example, if the tilt is to leave, the wheelchair will go in that direction; if the tilt is to the right, the wheelchair will move in the opposite way. The wheelchair then goes to the left. Wheelchair movement may be regulated in three ways: forward, backward and reverse, Left, and Right directions are all available. This system may also operate devices such as a DC fan and a DC light to assist physically handicapped persons.
