Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Accessibility Assessment: The model could be used to analyze populated areas in real-time to spot potential accessibility issues for people using wheelchairs and assist in designing more wheelchair-friendly spaces.

  2. Aid for Self-Driving Vehicles/Autonomous Robots: In the development of self-driving vehicles or autonomous robots, this model would help in identifying and navigating around wheelchairs or people using similar mobility aids to avoid accidents and mishaps.

  3. Security Surveillance: Surveillance systems could utilize this model to ensure safety for people with disabilities by identifying when someone in a wheelchair is present and potentially assisting in emergency situations, e.g., through allocating resources or alerting personnel.

  4. Augmented Reality for Disabled: The model can be used to develop an AR app that provides information about wheelchair navigation routes, ramp location, and obstruction to people with mobility impairments.

  5. Health Care Facilities: In hospitals or nursing homes, this model could aid in tracking movement of wheelchair-bound patients or residents for their safety and monitor if assistance is needed.
