Abstract: In India, more than 2% of the total population consists of people with some physical disability due to which they face problems while handling day to day activities. They face a severe lack of mobility and are dependent on others to help them move around. The system we have proposed here is an automated wheelchair system for the physically challenged that helps them move freely using only their eye pupil movement and thereby gain a sense of independence and self-mobility. The system can go forward, right or left and can stop along with obstacle detection capabilities. The system is simple to use, cost-effective and can be used by a variety of users with different eye shape, size and color.
