Description
The studentship will investigate the application of AI techniques for robotic systems to govern powered wheelchairs. Previous research has identified the need to develop a smart and adaptive system which is suitable for assisting a wide range of powered wheelchair users. Many users of powered wheelchairs find their medical condition and their ability to drive the wheelchair will change over time. In order to maintain independent mobility the powered chair requires adjustment over time to suit the user's needs. Currently, this need for regular input from the healthcare professional can result in a reduction of the user's quality of life. An important novelty of t...
