Abstract
This paper represents an important issue with accumulating separate fundamental mechanisms through the wheelchair for the handicapped persons as world is getting tired by seeing the handicapped scenarios for accidental or natural circumstances. Our job is to provide them a pretty easier life with the invention of this modified wheelchair. This chair consists of some important section of project for the handicapped person where all the belongings have been powered by mainly Arduino Uno. Along with this some additional devices like sensor, microcontroller, Bluetooth module, buzzed module and Android software have been used to fulfil the requirement. The chair moves with the directions of the navigation keys from Android mobile. For the deaf person a display has been used with a view to making better communication level with others by the voice command from Android mobile software. Besides, it can detect the obstacle from the front position for better justification of the user. However, this chair is sensible in detecting the hole or crack from the front position of the chair. Sensing living being from the front position is also a responsible duty which will be helpful for blind person indeed. Not only this but also a strong automation system has been provided to control the home appliances with the help of Android software. A 12.5 volt 1 Amp and 5V Battery have been used to power the tasks. This intelligent chair can carry up to 150 kilogram weight which will make a revolution indeed. The entire cost for this job was TK 13500 BDT (150 USD).
