Who is intelligent? Wheelchair, driver or both?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Intelligent wheelchair control has been a topic for many research projects in recent years, but few developments have been successfully transferred from the research to service or commercial domains. This paper addresses some of the reasons for the failure of technology transfer, and offers suggestions for more successful exploitation of research effort in the future. The paper illustrates the key issues through the author’s experience in participating in several research projects, funded by the European Union, charities and UK government agencies, and in bringing the CALL Centre Smart Wheelchair to the market.
