Abstract

Our society is moving towards an ageing society and the number of population with physical impairments and disabilities will increase dramatically. It is necessary to provide mobility support to these people so that they can live independently at home and integrated into the society. This paper presents a ROS (Robot Operating System) based multi-sensor navigation for an intelligent wheelchair that can help the elderly and disabled people. ROS provides an easy to use framework for rapid system development at a reduced cost. Some experimental results are given in the paper to demonstrate the feasibility and performance of the developed system.
