An assistive system easing wheelchair control for severely disabled users is presented. To compensate for the restricted information that can be provided using speciality controls, the person’s gaze is used to estimate the intended motion direction. The novelty of the presented method is that motionrelevant portions of natural gaze behavior can be(More)
A high level of psychomotor abilities often is essential for successfully operating many technical systems and especially medical and rehabilitation devices. This paper introduces an approach to enable a technical system to automatically assess its user’s level of psychomotor abilities, so that it can adapt its level of automation and provide the user with(More)
This paper introduces an approach for dynamically adapting the level of automation of a wheelchair system on the basis of the current level of the user’s motor abilities. For this purpose, a study is described, during which participants drove through a course consisting of 14 sub-sections. The predictive validity of the participants’ wheelchair driving(More)
Especially for severely disabled people, a powered wheelchair is an important means to participate in societal life. To optimally support people in need without putting an additional burden on them, methods have been developed to enable controlling an electrically powered wheelchair on the basis of the user’s natural gaze behavior. While existing approaches(More)
