This project represents the voice operated intelligent lift. This follows the principle of speech recognition. The lift is controlled by the user‘s voice commands. This project is useful for paralyzed, blind and physically challenged people. The lift operates based on the input voice commands. This eliminates the use of buttons in the lift and is user friendly. This project be haves like the human-machine interaction system. This project will be highly beneficial for the society. In this project MATLAB coding is used for voice recognition and IR sensor is used for detecting the floors and stopping the motor rotation. The DC motor is used for controlling the lift. The microcontroller is programmed using Embedded C Instructions.
