Home Automation System for People with Visual and Motor Disabilities in Colombia

  title={Home Automation System for People with Visual and Motor Disabilities in Colombia},
  author={William Coral Cuellar and Alvaro Alarcon and Jose Llanos and Jose Hernandez},
In this paper we present the development of a home automation system based on a Smartphone with touch to speech feedback. The purpose was to solving problems of accessibility and comfort inside homes for people with visual disabilities. The technological design was based on the development of a web server using an Arduino Uno and a Wi-Fi Shield. The router connects the smartphone to the web server. Then a router connects a smartphone to the server to receive information about the home location… Expand
