  • Abstract

    Assistive robotics can be designed to support the physically disabled persons in numerous ways. They are trying to reinstate human capabilities which has been condensed or lost by accident, at old age or disease. But physically disabled persons facing some troubles in their moments with the existing assisted devices. To give the support for Old age and disabled persons by developing an intelligent Robotic wheel chair, to improve the complex navigation techniques in mobile robotics replacing the existing assisted devices like wheelchair with the automated one. A new algorithm is developed depend onbetter reality which replaces the existing system and improves effective localization with high accuracy.This technique is mainly developed by blob analysis, pattern and color matching. We designed the total prototype on national instruments Robotic starterkit2.0. It is important to design a robot in such a way which avoids obstacles automatically when collision takes place. These types of robotic wheel chairs are very efficient and enable the user to move around easily and also gives the independence to one who have motor disability can easily move without others help.
