Abstract
Paralyzed and physically handicapped people either need assistance of others or requires a smart wheelchair to move from one place to another. As for wheelchair, the system needs to be gesture controlled since it is not easy to move body parts of physically handicapped and paralyzed people. This project presents a prototype of eye gesture detection based wheelchair driving system .For applying the instructions obtained from user’s eye movement, a Bot has been utilized as prototype of wheelchair. Moreover, an obstacle sensor has been added in order to avoid accident when any obstacle comes in front of the wheelchair. A webcam has been utilized in this project for obtaining user’s eye movement based instructions and Raspberry Pi B+ has been used as the central controller and processor for decoding and encoding instructions, image processing and system control.
