The Autonomous Wheelchair project focuses on the addition of environmental sensors and real-time, on-board machine intelligence to enhance powered mobility options that are already on the market.

We are designing a smart and connected power wheelchair add-on kit that would support both autonomous personal mobility as well as shared control (aka shared autonomy) for people with mobility limitations.
