Technology for disabled people remote control devices and antonomous wheelchair

This Master thesis project was elaborated in collaboration with the College of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg, EIA-FR, and the University of Florence. It was developed at the laboratory of the Multimedia Information Systems Group (MISG) for Degonda, a Swiss company manufacturing wheelchairs. The idea behind the project is to create the concept of "Smart WheelChair". The aim is to provide the user of the wheelchair with the comfort and the performance which a normal wheelchair cannot satisfy. We want to give the user an opportunity to interact with the environment via an autonomous drive managed from a smart phone.
