One of the most popular pieces of assistive technology used by people with mobility issues to move around on their own or with carer support and enhance their quality of life is a wheelchair. A wired wearable assistive device called the tongue controlled wheelchair allows the patients with severe impairments to steer their wheelchairs by using their tongue motion. This study describes the use of tongue movements to control a moving wheel chair. The tongue drive system is an Assistive Technology()AT tongue-operated device designed for persons with severe disabilities to manage their surroundings. This technology employs an array of Hall Effect magnetic sensors positioned on a mouthpiece connected to the helmet, as well as a tiny permanent magnet implanted on the tongue. The magnetic field created by the tiny permanent magnet is sensed using these Hall Effect sensors. The detected signals are transferred via wireless connection and processed by a microprocessor to control the wheelchairs movement. Many assistive devices were developed in the early days, and each design had significant drawbacks. This study provides an efficient, low-cost solution to all of the flaws found in priordesigns.
