Paper Title: Designing a Cost Effective Prototype of an Automated Wheelchair Based on EOG (Electrooculography)
The disability to control different limbs of human body is a major obstacle in which many people suffer from. This might be inherent or occur due to an accident. Their day-to-day activities are impeded by immobility and they are segregated from various social events to an extent. For the patients suffering from quadriplegia whose entire body is paralyzed, motorized mechanical systems such as wheelchair are not sufficient enough. A simplistic approach of an automated wheelchair has been proposed here which can be operated by directional eye movement using electrooculography (EOG) signal. After proper assembly the performance appraisal justifies the proposed prototypes effectiveness.
