This article introduces a set of novel haptic guidance algorithms intended to provide intuitive and reliable assistance for electric wheelchair navigation through narrow or crowded spaces. The proposed schemes take hereto the non-holonomic nature and a detailed geometry of the wheelchair into consideration. The methods encode the environment as a set of(More)
This paper describes a novel haptic guidance scheme that helps powered wheelchair users steer their wheelchair through narrow and complex environments. The proposed scheme encodes the local environment of the wheelchair as a set of collision-free circular paths. An adaptive impedance controller is constructed upon these circular paths. The controller(More)
