Abstract: The primary objective of this paper is to present a feasible and effective technique by which wheelchairs can be controlled. This focuses on making the lives of physically challenged and elderly people easier. Physically disabled people face a lot of difficulty in operating a wheelchair on their own. There are a lot of people facing problems in their daily life due to their physical disability. We devise a method with the use of micro-controllers and embedded programming that will reduce the effort given by a locomotor disabled person to move around. The solution put forward has a socio-economic outcome as it helps the needy by apt use of technology. Using this technique one can pose a limited set of hand-gestures and the robotic wheelchair will move in the corresponding direction. The technique involved has a fast, highly accurate algorithm that makes the wheelchair move by hand gestures.
