ABSTRACT: Bedridden individuals often face a significant challenge when it comes to performing daily activities due to their inability to move. Such individuals have to rely on others for assistance with even the most basic tasks, which can lead to a feeling of dependency and a reduced sense of autonomy. This lack of independence can negatively impact their mental and emotional well-being, and can cause a decline in their overall quality of life. To address this issue, we designed and implemented a robot to assist bedridden individuals in performing various tasks. This robot combines a mobile robot with a versatile robotic arm, which is controlled through the Blynk platform. The Blynk platform is a mobile application that allows users to remotely control devices that are connected to the internet. With the help of the ESP8266 microcontroller and L298N Motor driver, the robot can be easily maneuvered. The robotic arm utilizes servos to perform a wide range of angular movements, making it capable of performing many activities that were previously impossible for bedridden individuals. This technology allows bedridden individuals to perform tasks like object manipulation and relocation, providing them with a newfound sense of independence and significantly improving their quality of life.
