Multi Control wheelchair device revolves around one main idea is helping people with special needs to have a better independent life. A hardware implementation to a modification of a self-propelled wheelchair is presented in this paper. That modification is to move it electronically and with multi control. That to help people with special needs in different situations rely on themselves only to move from one place to another through the use of three different ways to control the chair. Each control is accordance to the situation of those with special needs. The first control is aimed to those who suffering of the paralysis those cannot move their feet. That control allows them to control the movement of the chair by their hands using the joystick easily. The second control is aimed at those who suffering from paralysis of the quadrilateral and cannot move any of the limbs. That control allows them to control the movement of the chair using voice commands. The third control is aimed at those who suffering from the inability to move any of the limbs and also cannot speak like those suffering from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ―ALS‖. That control allows them to control the chair by moving the eyelids "blinks". The chair also has a fourth control, but is not aimed to those with special needs, but it aimed to those responsible for them. While the occurrence of whatever prevents who with special needs from the controlling by himself in the chair. This control allows the responsible to control the chair through the smart phone. The chair also has a high safety system so that the chair will automatically stop in case of any hurdle of about fifty centimeters by using ultrasonic waves. Our smart system is designed and developed to save cost, time, accuracy, energy and dependence on the others. Our system is based on using an embedded system as part of the complete device including electrical hardware component and mechanical parts. Several test results of the multi control systems have been monitored to verify the efficiency of the proposed device.
