The objective of this research is to develop an affordable voice-actuated wheelchair to assist people with both upper and lower limb disabilities. An Arduino microcontroller processes the voice command from the speech recognition module and controls the motor movement of the wheelchair. Bluetooth module was also used to do away with messy wiring and an optional joystick command was also incorporated into the prototype design. The success rate of the wheelchair to recognize the voice commands in English, Chinese and Malay was very high. A voice-actuated wheelchair prototype was successfully developed by modifying a commonly available manual wheelchair. The overall cost of the prototype was kept to a minimum to make it affordable.
