INFLUENCES OF A SERVO-ASSISTIDED MOTORIZATION CONTROLED WITH FUZZY LOGIC OVER THE WHEELCHAIR DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR 2005-01-4000
The aim of this article is to study the dynamic behavior of a system composed by a child and a wheelchair during the propulsion with a servo-assisted motorization controlled with a logic fuzzy algorithm. The model correspond a vehicle with propulsion on the rear wheels, steering is on the front wheels. The wheels were modeled as rigid and a double bicycle model was used. The fuzzy controller will act over the system applying additional forces during the wheelchair propulsion looking for increase the user mobility and will be tested and evaluated bearing on mind the increasing of the system performance.
