Wheelchair Joystick Controller
University of New Brunswick
In this report, the problem definition and steps that have been taken to achieve the specified goals are presented. A brief scope of the project was developed using the background information and the literature on the existing technologies. The budget, conceptual design, design specifications, design calculations and a set of detailed drawings of the design were developed using the research information and the technical constraints. As the project advances, these design parameters will be updated to reflect the desired results. To obtain the client’s goals, a design involving pinion pulleys, timing belts and actuators is developed to control the joystick. The deficiencies and changes to our previous designs will be presented in the report to show the iterations required to obtain the final design. All the steps for construction and parts purchasing will also be presented.
