|Project Summary||Project Information|
A Motor Assisted Wheelchair (MAW) provides a user the benefits of an electric wheelchair, such as the ability to traverse inclined pathways or move at economically quick paces without losing his or her breath, while retaining the wheelchair's ability to move through doors or other corridors. A previous prototype of this device was developed by Senior Design Team 16007, which needs to cost less, weigh less, and provide greater power.
The goal of this project is to analyze and modify the current prototype by identifying opportunities to make the additional device lighter, more compact, easier to operate, and more energy and cost efficient. The expected result is a functioning prototype capable of meeting all customer requirements which can then be marketed to companies and have a competitive advantage in the market.
