AbstractMedical electronics has always been a very popular field for innovations, regardless of the medical advances that have happened. This paper presents the prospect of developing a neuro-processing wheelchair, an incredibly useful accessory for the quadriplegic, the deaf and dumb, who have lost the use of their limbs. To develop this prototype, we a technology knows as Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) , a medium through which a direct communication pathway between a human/animal brain and the outside world is established. The prototype consists of a wheelchair, which is controlled using EEG signals obtained from the human brain. The Neuro sky product i.e. mind wave device headset is used to measure the human brainwave signals. The signals are then mapped and compared with the reference values of attention and meditation levels along with blinking eye signals. The wheelchair moves in different directions and can be controlled effectively using the precise thoughts of the individual. So, a human’s ability to concentrate is used effectively to control the given wheelchair. An IMU is used to control the wheelchair in slope positions and GPS, GSM to identify the particular location and movement of a person.
