Wheelchairs are great assistance for people with disabilities. Recent development in wheelchair technology includes smart ways of controlling the wheelchair and at the same time making it cost-effective and affordable to the user. In this paper,a new way of controlling a wheelchair by means of gyroscope and flex sensor has been proposed.With the help of these sensors, the control of the wheelchair will be implemented by simple hand gestures and finger bending. The control mechanism, transmission, and reception of the signals will be processed through the use of Arduino and Xbee.
