Sherif Kamel Hussein Hassan Ratib, Arab East Colleges, KSA


The main objective of this paper is to build Smart Brain Controlled wheelchair (SBCW) intended for patient of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Brain control interface (BCI) gave solutions for a patients having a low rate of data exchange, alsoby using the BCIthe user should have the ability to meditate and tension to let the signal get received. Using the BCI continuously is very much exhausted for the patients, Theproposed system is trying to give all handicapped people and ALS patients the simplest way to let them have a life at least near to the normal life. The system will mainly depend on the Electroencephalogram (EEG) signalsand also on the Electromyography (EMG) signals to put the system in command and out of command. The system will interface with user through a tablet and it will be secured by sensors and tracking system to avoid any obstacle. The proposed system is safe and easily built with lower cost compared with other similar systems.
