ABSTRACT
Now a day's all comforts in human life is the result of revolutionary advancement in technology. Modern Automation techniques; a part of technology is utilized in this design of "Automated Wheelchair" to give user a fully automated control. But the key story is not about control. The key approach was to find an easier way to cross inclined stairs with users. A new phenomenon was found from engineering analysis to cross stairs in an efficient way by the proper selection of wheel radius. The comfort is dedicated to the people who are suffering in normal movement. The developed 'Automatic Wheel Chair' would provide a comfortable and dynamic life-style to the handicaps which might be very much closer to their dreams.
