A micro-controller was embedded into the wheelchair control path. Information was read from the joystick and new sensor system and signals were sent to the wheelchair controller.

The raw sensor data were processed to improve the reliability of the range data by mapping the A self-contained, intelligent, micro-controller expert system to augment powered wheelchair users Author: Stott, Ian James.
