Personal mobility means freedom for the physically challenged. One of the best inventions in the medical field that helped both the elderly and the handicapped is the mobility vehicle. The fact that they are no longer depending on someone else to perform daily duties is a big step forward. A large variety of mobility vehicles are available, from which one is to be selected as per requirements. Mobility Vehicles are designed based on the usage, i.e. either indoor or outdoor. They make use of conventional energy for recharging. The cost of the vehicle may not be affordable for a common man. In this paper an attempt is made to fabricate a Solar- powered wheel chair at an optimal cost which can be utilized in both indoor and outdoor environments.
