Abstract:In the year 2008, there were 150,000 cases of quadriplegia and paraplegia (a person with no control over four & two limbs (respectively) due to spinal cord damage) in the world. We want to give them a new life with our innovative voice-activated wheelchair. With the use of GPSs, sensors, and computer programs, we were able to construct a reliable, safe, and effective wheelchair.
