2EYE CONTROLLED ELECTRIC WHEEL CHAIRIntroductionThe aim of this report is to discuss the importance of risk assessment planning in aproject. This report emphasis on the risk related to the application of eye controlled wheel chairinto the community and the role of risk assessment to the threats and issues that could arise inthis implication. Adoption of this latest technology over the traditional wheel chair or electricalwheelchair could result the physically handicapped individuals to move to different places withjust the movement of eyes. It is the most innovative technology, which is almost unknown tovarious sectors but have many applications (Lai et al. 2013). This will eliminate the reliability ofthe patients over a trainer or carer and live his or her life independently. This innovativeimplication has greater positive aspects but the production and application of this technologycould arise several threats and risks for the stakeholders that are involved in this project. Riskassessment is very necessary for these threats and risks as explained in this report.Eye Controlled Electric Wheel ChairPlesnick, Repice and Loughnane (2014) presented an article on the successfullydeveloped eye controlled electric wheel chair. Controlling wheelchair through the use of an eyetracker can be possible and how it can be achieved is demonstrated in their paper. The presenteddesign of the wheelchair is helpful in gaining control of the wheelchair through using lots ofhardware and software components in order to create an effective system. The components of thesystem include a laptop, an eye tracker, a DAQ, a web cam, an inverter, and lastly an electricwheelchair, which are the comprised hardware for the system. Software that are included in thissystem are C++ scripts and LabVIEW programs, which are used to interact with eye tracker andDAQ, and processing the data (Nguyen and Jo 2012). The eye controlled electric wheelchair is

In this case the term‘risk’ can be referred as the possibility of negative outcome that might occur while, moving onthe discovered chair or the injury that may be caused to the environment and the individual usingthis chair (Lim et al. 2013). The role of risk assessment will help in minimizing or completelyeliminating following issues:Workers at factory and cleaning chemicalsWorkers at the factory or industry, where this chairs could be created may lead to certainthreats and risks to the workers that are being employed there because of the chemicals that willbe used for the production. Exposure standards of these chemicals represent the concentration ofa mixture or a particular substance, which should not be exceeded to the environment of theindustry. Basically, there are three types of the exposure standard, which can be listed as, firstly‘8-hour time-weighted’, secondly, ‘average peak limitation’ and ‘short term exposure limit’.Exposure standard do not represent a fine line between the healthy and an unhealthy environmentof work (Dixon 2015). The database of Hazardous Substances Information System (HSIS)contains guidance and additional information for many of the substances.
