Start date: 04/2008
End date: 03/2011

Description: The aim of the project is to develop intelligent robotic devices that could help people with severe disabilities achieve greater independence. The main project objectives are to investigate: 1) a brain-computer interface that allows a disabled person to control a smart wheelchair and a robotic 'helper' combination by thinking; 2) a visual tracking system for operating the wheelchair as an automated guided vehicle to provide mobility; and 3) the development of a robotic arm for the natural execution of actions desired by the disabled user.
