Evaluating gaze-driven power wheelchair with navigation support for persons with disabilities

Erik Wästlund, PhD, et al.

This article describes a system for gaze-driven control and navigation support. The system is intended for people with severe disabilities who only have control of their eyes. Gaze-control is used instead of a joystick, and navigation support can provide assistance if needed. The system is attached to the user???s power wheelchair and customized to his or her needs for different levels of support. All test participants were able to independently operate their powered wheelchair. They were very positive and appreciated the independence the system provided. In addition to being a personal aid, the system also serves as a tool for evaluation and rehabilitation.
