|Abstract: ||The Intelligent Wheelchair is a technical semiautonomous wheelchair developed as a solution for problems associated with
traditional wheelchairs. It enables a user to use the wheelchair by himself without the aid of another person, irrespective of his
form of disability or physical condition. The human effort required for wheelchair operation is greatly minimized as the user will
be able to control the wheelchair simply by moving a joystick or by issuing voice commands. Automated obstacle detection and
avoidance provides the users with enhanced security. The users are also facilitated with wireless communication for emergency
situations. The Intelligent wheelchair is developed as a low cost embedded system and does not require a plugged in laptop or
computer. Hence, it proves to be the ideal solution for the physically disabled|
