Some persons, though, have strong speech impairments and, consequently, can not use voice control as such. Voice in these cases can be complemented or replaced by other physical interfaces, controlled by head, feet, chin, shoulder switches, etc, which are fairly common, yet quite expensive in the field of assistive technologies. These interfaces are not as comfortable as the aforementioned ones but, in some cases, there may be no other choice for the user to exert some control on mobility. While it might be tempting to just intuitively choose one of these, given a particular case, it is extremely important to take into account ergonomics and medical factors.

4 All Together Now In brief, after evaluating all commented systems, it can be concluded that in most cases research on robotic wheelchairs focuses either on: i) interfaces to support different types of disability; or ii) in control architectures mostly based on previous robotic research. In the second case, wheelchairs usually rely on the hybrid control paradigm, simplified in extreme to a reactive layer that is frequently designed according to the subsumption principles. Specifically, in this work we use our DLA, a GPL layered, 3T based structure where modules can be spread over one or several machines in a transparent way via shared memory/sockets communication mechanisms.

Finally, in order to move through narrow places like doors, ηs f might be low sometimes. Eq. 4 is basically used to decide who makes the smartest move at each point, human or wheelchair, so they get awarded in terms of control. 2 A Wink and a Smile Once ηR and ηH have been calculated, we could simply give control to the most efficient agent at each time instant or favour the person unless ηH drops under a threshold. However, any criteria to switch from one vector to another, while coherent with the shared control paradigm, present several drawbacks.
