Optimizing the Control of a Wi-Fi based Teleoperated Mobile WheelchairPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The purpose of this project is to optimize an educational robotics platform built for students to be presented with a meaningful real-world problem: lack of control options available for people with different levels of disabilities to control a wheelchair. For this purpose, the Wi-Fi based wheelchair controlled by an Android application, is optimized. We established a robust wireless communication method and supplemented the multimodal control options with a speed regulation and GPS navigation system. The end- result is an expansible framework that can extend to other robots sold by the sponsoring company at DEPUSH Technology Co. Ltd., based in Wuhan, China.
