They must rely on another people to walk and must undergo physical therapy under the supervision of a physician. of a therapist to recuperate their strain back. The proposed device allows the user to operate easily and freely while also reducing the cost of a therapist's intervention. The development of a smart wheelchair is based on the use of an eye-controlled system to control the wheelchair's mobility. Aside from that, an ultrasonic system provides automatic embedded sensors. Because our project entails creating a method that enables the user to engage with the manual wheelchair at several levels, such as avoiding collisions through object detection, that enables for effective risk management, and a functionality that permits the smart wheelchair to be turned into a bed, It significantly decreases reliance on caregivers or relatives. The wheelchair ensures safety by including capabilities such as object detection and automatic braking. detection to avoid dangers they may meet in their daily lives, such as stairwells, potholes, and so on.
