ABSTRACT
The article discusses the system that uses brain waves to control a wheelchair, reportedly developed by BSI-Toyota Collaboration Center in Tokyo, Japan. It explains that the commands for the movement of the chair are processed through the analysis of brain waves with the use of signal-processing technology. The technology is expected to be useful in the field of rehabilitation and for physical and psychological support of wheelchair users.

    A robotic wheelchair with inverse pendulum control has been proposed in this paper. By using the robotic wheelchair, a heelchair-bound person can climb over a step up to about 7 cm without a helper's assistance. The robotic wheelchair moves on flat ground using four wheels. It raises its front...
