Many disable persons are able to operate a joystick to control the electric wheelchair but on the other hand, many people do not have the legerdemain necessary to operate a joystick. Moreover, many of them face difficulty to avoid obstacles. The aim of this paper is to implement a multi-control system to control the movement of the wheelchair by integrating finger movement tracking system, a small vocabulary speaker dependent based word recognition system and a group of monitoring sensors in order to avoid obstacles. Moreover, a joystick control system is also implemented in order to facilitate the patients that are able to use the joystick. The theme is accomplished by using a micro-controller with digital signal processor for isolated word recognition and sets of sensors. The results are also given at the end of the paper.
