Voice controlled wheelchair developed by Bihar student
Ashutosh Prakash from Bihar has created a voice-controlled, battery-operated wheelchair. The idea was inspired by his aged grandfather who wanted to be able to do his daily chores independently without help.
Prakash who is a final year technology student, has developed a wheelchair that responds to voice command for four basic movements, left, right, forward and back. It stops when there is an obstacle or if there is a staircase.
It can sense if the floor is rough and stops, ensuring the user's safety. Prakash has also designed an inexpensive prosthetic limb that responds to brain signals.
