A model of a power WheelChair running in V-REP. This model uses two laser sensors to perceive the environment and generate control commands that enable the WheelChair to follow a walkway in an outdoor urban environment.

This simulation video demonstrates the autonomous WheelChair's ability to follow a walkway round a corner by detecting and tracking the curb.

This next one demonstrates the autonomous WheelChair's obstacle detection functionality. The WheelChair avoids the obstacle while trying to maintain its position within the walkway.

Then this video displays the autonomous WheelChair's road crossing algorithm.

This is part of a research project to develop a User Assisted Mobility Scooter.
