Tongue Operated Wheelchair for Physically Disabled People

New innovations

The "Tongue Dive System" technology is a tongue worked Assistive Technology (AT) created for individuals with extreme incapacity to control their condition. Tongue Drive comprises of a variety of Hall Effect attractive sensors mounted on a mouthpiece to gauge the attractive field produced by a little perpetual magnet secured on the tongue. The sensor signs are transmitted over a remote connection and prepared to control the controlled wheelchair. In past a considerable measure of Assistive Technologies have been outlined however every one of them had certain bad marks. 

Tongue Operated Wheelchair

The tongue is viewed as a superb extremity in extremely crippled individuals for working an Assistive gadget. The technology used in this paper exhibits a productive, minimal effort answer for every one of the issues experienced in past AT's. Point by point investigation of different outline forms has likewise been talked about. Finish framework proposed in this paper has been composed around PIC microcontroller and a RF module. The outline has been tried and result accomplished affirms the plan approach delineated.

Assistive Technology (AT) alludes to any thing, bit of hardware, or framework, regardless of whether obtained monetarily, adjusted, or altered, that is usually used to increment, keep up, or enhance utilitarian capacities of people with inabilities . The range of incapacities differs broadly in sort and seriousness. AT incorporates a tremendous scope of gadgets, including versatility helps, augmentative specialized gadgets (voice synthesizers and correspondence sheets), prosthetic and orthotic gadgets, and a horde of versatile PC hardware. AT can be "low-tech" (a glass holder for a wheelchair plate) or "cutting edge" (braincomputer interfaces for correspondence and natural control). 

AT can help individuals with inabilities enhance their personal satisfaction, contribute monetarily and socially, and increment their autonomy . Regardless of potential value, the accessibility of fitting AT for individuals with handicaps might be hazardous. Most remarkably, because of the specific needs of every individual with an inability, the market for one specific assistive gadget might be exceedingly little, driving up the cost of particular assistive gadgets. The high cost of AT exacerbates the issue of finding a proper AT gadget: individuals will be unable to bear to attempt diverse gadgets and advance projects can be cost-restrictive . 

Second, because of little markets, and the restricted limits of the AT business area, proper assistive gadgets may basically not exist for some particular needs, or potential clients may not know about them. A substantial gathering of AT gadgets are accessible, that are controlled by switches . The switch incorporated hand support, blow-n-suck (taste n-puff) gadget, jaw control framework, and Electromyography (EMG) switch are all switch based frameworks and furnish the client with restricted degrees of opportunity. A gathering of head-mounted assistive gadgets has been produced that imitate a PC mouse with head developments. Cursor developments in these gadgets are controlled by following an infrared pillar produced or reflected from a transmitter or reflector joined to the client's glasses, top, or headband. 

Tilt sensors and video-based PC interfaces that can track facial elements have likewise been executed by numerous specialists. One constraint of these gadgets is that lone those individuals whose head development is not repressed may benefit this innovation. Another constraint is that the client's head ought to dependably be in positions inside the scope of the gadget sensors. For instance the controller may not be open when the client is lying in bed or not sitting before a PC. Another class of PC get to frameworks work by following eye developments from corneal reflections and understudy position. Electro-oculographic (EOG) potential estimations  have additionally been utilized for recognizing the eye developments. 

A noteworthy confinement of these gadgets is that they influence the clients' vision by requiring additional eye developments that can meddle with clients' typical visual exercises, for example, perusing, composing, and viewing. Till date, not very many assistive advances have made an effective move outside research labs and generally used by seriously crippled in their normal life. Numerous specialized and psychophysical components influence the acknowledgment rate of a specific Assistive Technology. 

The most vital variables are the simplicity of use and comfort in charge. Working the assistive gadget must be anything but difficult to learn and require least exertion on the client's part. The gadget ought to be little, inconspicuous, ease, and non-or negligibly intrusive. At long last, a component that is frequently ignored is that the gadget ought to be cosmetically satisfactory. Besides, a crippled individual could never need to look not quite the same as an in place individual.


A tongue worked attractive sensor based remote assistive innovation has been created for individuals with extreme incapacities to lead a self-strong free life by empowering them to control their condition utilizing their tongue. This innovation works by following the developments of a changeless magnet, secured on the tongue, using a variety of straight Hall-impact sensors. The sensor yields are an element of the position-subordinate attractive field created by the lasting magnet. 

This enables a little exhibit of sensors to catch countless developments. In this way, giving faster, smoother, and more helpful relative control contrasted with many existing assistive advancements. Different points of interest of the Tongue Drive framework are being unpretentious, ease, insignificantly obtrusive, adaptable, and simple to work.
