Many people with mobility impairments have difficulty using ordinary wheelchairs for a variety of reasons. Powered wheelchairs can alleviate many inconveniences, but require battery charging and transferring between bed and wheelchair may be difficult. We developed a robotic wheelchair to resolve these problems. The robotic wheelchair can operate in three modes: manual, semi-autonomous, and autonomous. In autonomous mode, it can perform autonomous docking to both the battery charging station and the mechatronic transfer robot system.
