A student of MS electrical Engineering, Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering at LUMS, Faaiz Arbab, has manufactured Pakistan’s first Smart Wheelchair called GOBEE. National Design Awards (NDA) Pakistan has awarded Arbab with the best Consumer Product Design Award (2018) for his Voice Operated Smart Wheel Chair.
GOBEE is not only water repellent, and anti-rusting, but also has alloy rim wheels combined with an anti-sweat technology sofa seat.
FIRST SMART WHEELCHAIR OF PAKISTAN CREATED BY LUMS STUDENT
Arbab aims to assist people with disabilities through technology. The smart wheelchair offers Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a remote control which goes over the range of a 100 feet.
Initially Arbab was not really confident that the National Incubation Center (NIC) at LUMS would acknowledged his idea. Although he was able to design an electric wheelchair many years ago and scored victories in science contests while doing his graduation from UET Lahore, he gave up on his dream and pursued a full-time job.
