Movement-limiting conditions affect as many as half a million people across the globe. Those faced with these conditions lack easy-to-use tools and services to help them gain the autonomy they crave.
Using a combination of Intel hardware and software, HOOBOX developed ‘The Wheelie’—a wheelchair kit that utilizes facial recognition technology to capture, process, and translate facial expressions into real-time wheelchair commands, finally providing individuals with autonomy regardless of the physical limitations they’re facing.
