This paper presents a new way of helping the mobility of the Covid 19 patients with the aid of tech. We have developed a wheelchair which can be
operated in manifold ways without the need for human force. This paper describes the way we achieved to implement voice control, button control,
and gesture control and even mind control (in future iteration). This paper also describes the safety measures we implemented to ensure safe .safety and
well-being of the individual by implementing obstruction 6detection, live streaming and emergency messaging system. This paper also describes our goal
of being able to offer our tech to the most people possible and thus our aim of keeping the cost of production low and making an affordable product for
the masses.
