Voice control of a powered wheelchair

  title={Voice control of a powered wheelchair},
  author={R C Simpson and S Levine},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering},
Several researchers have described voice control mechanisms for a power wheelchair, but voice control has yet to become a commercially viable control alternative. One problem with voice control is that the voice's limited bandwidth renders it impossible to make frequent small adjustments to the wheelchair's velocity. One possible solution is to utilize voice control in combination with the navigation assistance provided by "Smart wheelchairs," which use sensors to identify and avoid obstacles… CONTINUE READING
