This paper sets out a design and development of a smart wheelchair using an embedded system. The proposed design of the wheelchair can be controlled through bluetooth which enables the user to control the wheelchair with less effort. Touch commands are deployed to the system in addition to the virtual joystick-controlling interface to enhance the interaction with the user. This aids the disabled in carrying out daily activities independently within indoor environments. Experiments are conducted to verify the functionality of the developed smart wheelchair.
