The control interface is one of the most critical components of the electric-powered wheelchair (EPW). The control interface must accommodate the user's limitations and maximize the user's abilities. This study extended Fitts' Law for target-acquisition to a continuously updated target. The extended Fitts' Law was used to examine EPW driving with a standard(More)
— This paper proposes a complete motion sensing solution for wheelchairs with the main objective of determining tips, falls and other hazardous situations. This kind of motion-logging solution is necessary to study needs and habits of wheelchair users. The system collects motion information utilizing an inertial measurement unit (IMU) consisting of three(More)
