Abstract
The project develops and evaluates a prototype navigation device that attaches to a wheelchair and wirelessly communicates to a web-based navigation application. The navigation aid includes a small portable tablet PC that connects to the Internet using a wireless modem. The system allows a wheelchair user to plan and navigate a route with respect to safety and shortest travel path while collecting data on location, orientation, and pathway quality.
