Intelligent Wheelchair

Wheelchair equipped with a computer, a Kinect and two Sick S300 laser scanner

We are  developing a wheelchair which will accept speech commands, navigate autonomously in buildings and apartments, which will see and recognize objects. It will be able to fetch objects for the user from shelves and from the floor.

We are a part of the Artificial Intelligence Group of the Freie Universität Berlin. Our goal is to develop a smart wheelchair that can help elderly and disabled people with their daily tasks.

We are currently at an early stage of development and looking for student members. Several projects for a Bachelor- or Master Thesis are available.
