SyncWheel

 

We developed SyncWheel based on Telewheelchair [Hashizume et al. 2018]. SyncWheel use a VR system to remotely control an electric wheelchair. We implemented an automatic tracking travel system in SyncWheel. We used two electric wheelchairs. We attach the iPad which displays the AR marker on the back of the base unit wheelchair. The slave unit wheelchair recognizes the AR marker attached to the base unit with the attached web camera. The slave unit follows the base unit wheelchair based on the position of the AR marker. The base unit can be remotely operated using HMD or by a controller standing beside a wheelchair.
