Abstract

In present world many people are suffering from quadriplegia that is hands and legs disability. The patient become dependent on others even for controlling room appliances. To bring ease in their life different manual methods are designed which are quite difficult for disabled persons. However, increase in use of home automation in recent times to control electrical appliances yet these devices are not affordable from every class of society. Disabled people especially in less developed country wish for low cost and highly efficient product. In our project we develop a voice-based load control system for quadriplegic patient which gives reliability and simple method of controlling all the electrical loads using voice commands. Proposed system comprises of Raspberry pi 4 that is associated with Relay module. The voice from user is taken as input through USB microphone and converted in to message through Google Api for controller processing which leads to load triggering. The uniqueness of this proposed system is that the available systems is appropriate for individuals of each class of individuals and is user friendly.
