Tongue Operated Smart Environment for Paralytic People
The “tongue drive” system is a tongue operated assistive technology developed for people with severe disability to control their environment. The tongue is considered an excellent appendage in severely disabled people for operating an assistive device. Tongue drive consists of an magnet reed relays outside of the teeth to measure the magnetic field generated by a small permanent magnet secured on the tongue. The sensor signals are transmitted to an encoder which wirelessly transmit signal and processed to display the needs of paralytic person. The tongue is considered an excellent attachment in severely disabled people for operating an assistive device. This paper presents our recent progress to the development of tongue operated smart environment for paralytic people.
