4 INCLUSIVE DESIGNERS

Mismatch: How Inclusion Shapes Design, None

John R. Porter's bedroom would make any die-hard gamer feel right at home. Among the personal computers, beyond the Run Lola Run movie poster, across from a MakerBot busily extruding plastic threads into an unidentifiable widget, is a large black pegboard. The kind of board my grandfather used for hanging hammers and wrenches in his garage.

  • Evaluation of system components for mobile navigation applications

    A concept for the evaluation of navigation components with known system requirements and limitations makes use of modern structured analysis and design methods so that the requirements can be connected easily to efficient realizations. Design is divided into phases, each supported by and checked according to the previous phases or requirements. This method involves stepwise modeling of the application. The importance of each parameter is given by a normalized value selected by the designer. Components and subsystems to be used in navigation applications are modeled and evaluated. Results are shown as parameter weights. Selection of realization is done by comparing the evaluation matrices calculated for each choice. The evaluation of the total system estimates parameters such as accuracy, complexity, and cost. Some examples of applications are given including a delivery van, a wheel chair, and an automatically guided vehicle.<<ETX>>

  • Fuzzy power assist control system for omni-directional transport wheelchair

    In this paper, a novel power assist system for the attendant of an omni- directional transport wheelchair is proposed. The input force of the attendant is measured using a force sensor attached to the handle of the wheelchair. The desired motion of the wheelchair is estimated from the output signal of the force sensor using fuzzy reasoning. Then, it is transmitted to four motors of the wheelchair to make it move toward the desired direction. The effectiveness of the proposed method is examined by simulations and experiments.

  • Analysis of a prototype geared pushrim with a manual pushrim using physiological data

    The goal of this study was to compare a prototype geared wheelchair (WC) pushrim to a standard WC pushrim during different WC propulsion conditions. The test protocol required unimpaired subjects and WC users to maintain similar mechanical work levels for both pushrims during several trials. Significant physiological differences were found, between the pushrims, for the unimpaired during the uphill at 0.89 m/s and flat surface at 0.89 m/s and the WC users during the flat surface at 1.79 m/s.

  • Wrist biomechanics in 3-D local coordinate space during wheelchair propulsion

    The purpose of this paper is to describe the development and testing of a 3-D local coordinate system for assessing wrist biomechanics during wheelchair propulsion. Vectors centered at the ulnar styloid define planes of the wrist and thus flexion/extension, radial/ulnar deviation, and supination/pronation can be determined. The three predominant forces occurring during the propulsion phase are a shear force acting from radial to ulnar styloid, a shear force acting from palmar to dorsal surface, and a compressive force acting along the long axis of the wrist and forearm. The largest moment acts in the direction of ulnar deviation, not flexion or extension. This study demonstrates the importance of using a 3-D local coordinate space for assessing wrist kinetics during wheelchair propulsion and further work will provide insight into possible injury mechanisms.

  • A comparative analysis of a navigation platform designed in Arduino and FPGA

    The paper carries out a comparative analysis of a fixed path navigation platform designed in both Arduino and FPGA in terms of accuracy, complexity and error percentage. The platform is designed using a rotation encoder as the distance estimation device with motors and drivers controlled by an overall controller which could either be a microcontroller or an FPGA. The rotation encoder used for both designs consists of a MOC7811 encoder IC, which translates number of pulses into distance required. Other common components are wheelchair motors and their corresponding drivers. The test device used is a normal wheelchair. The device was designed to move through three different paths with fixed paths between each room programmed into the controller. These paths were kept constant for both the Arduino microcontroller and the FPGA. The results were thoroughly analyzed for each controller and the observations recorded.

  • Soft raising and lowering of front wheels for inverse pendulum control wheel chair robot

    Wheel chair bound persons need assistance since there are many steps or curbs or other obstacles blocking their path in the roadways and walkways. Therefore, we are proposing a power assist wheel chair robot, which enables a wheel chair bound person to climb over steps of up to about 10 centimeters in height without assistance. By using the proposed wheel chair robot, a user can maintain inverse pendulum control after raising its front wheels. Then, a user can move forward to the step maintaining the inverse pendulum control, and can climb over the step using the DC motor force of rear wheel shafts. We have presented previously the front wheel raising scheme using rear wheel shaft movement. The inverse pendulum control has been conducted successfully. However, a rider on the robotic wheel chair felt a small shock since the front wheels were raised quickly. A new front wheel raising and lowering scheme is proposed in order to raise and lower the front wheels gently. The proposed scheme uses the rider's seat movement. The raising speed could be slowed down about 20 times, and the overshoot could be decreased about 5 times.

  • The evaluation of maneuvering objects vis-à-vis wheelchair-user

    This paper presents on new performance approach to determine the accessibility of maneuver/actuating elements like (doors, windows etc) inside habitat for wheelchair user. The idea is to involve a new computer data-base approach to evaluate the performance of these elements against person capacities physics needs. The presents approach simulated person-wheelchair behavior when he/she is operating such device in order to determine the dimensions/position of wheelchair maneuver space, whatever its arrival direction, and the position and the height of the handle grip, respecting the geometric constraints of the upper body of the person (table 1) and those of the wheelchair displacements.

  • The effect of new European norms on the world EMC market

    The European Union has issued an EMC Directive requiring virtually all electrical and electronic products be tested for EMC compliance. This Directive will have an economic effect on manufacturers world-wide and influence standards development at international, national and corporate levels. Although the test requirements are driven by actual events involving public safety, the standards themselves now only require minimum levels of testing. As the EMC field grows and expands, standards need to evolve and become more realistic. The author discusses the driving forces behind the Directive, the Directive itself, the effects of the Directive, EMC test standards and the future.
