AbstractIn this paper, we present our work called wireless voice-based wheelchair controller system, which consists of an Android device and a control system that controls the movement of wheelchair using a DC motor. This project is aim to ease the burden for wheelchair user especially for elderly people to move around. The control system is build using the Yo-Yo (IOIO) platform that controls the DC motor, communicates with the Android phone application using RF receiver through a Bluetooth communication protocol and RF signal. The Android application is developed using Basic-4-Android (B4A) rapid development tool connected with one main control interface using voice command, D-pad and joystick to control the motor driver MD30C direction and speed through IOIO platform based on four conditions; forward, backward, right and left. The speed movement is controlled by Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signal while the direction movement for Qibla’ is generated by the control interface and guided by an electronic compass in the Android device. While there are some limitations in the cost and direction movement, the concept developed in this project are proven convenience innovation and provides better benefits to the targeted market and public interest.
