In: Miesenberger K., Klaus J., Zagler W., Karshmer A. (eds) Computers Helping People with Special Needs. ICCHP 2008. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 5105. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg
Summary: This article is about navigating for people with mobility problems. They explore a combination of accessibility maps and route planning for people with mobility problems. When in an elderly scooter accessibility of a place of rout is important. As an pedestrian you can take the stairs but when you are in an elderly scooter this is not possible.
Article: piyawan kasemsuppakorn & Hassan A. Karimi (2008) Personalised routing for wheelchair navigation
Summary: This article presents routing methods suitable for wheelchair users by taking into account obstacles. they calculate scores for sideways segment and use those scores to toe determine the best route between tow addresses in a network.
Article: e.prassle, j. scholz P. Fiorini (1999) Navigating a Robotic Wheelchair in a Railway Station during Rush Hour
This is an old article about a robotic wheel chair. But is about using a robotic wheel chair during rush hours in a train station. This is similar to one of the problems we were thinking about namely using a elderly scooter in a supermarket when there are a lot of other people. In this article they are already talking about standard skills like following a wall or corridor or passing a doorway. This are all skill we can also use. the wheelchair in this article is already able to move collision free through a busy train station.
Article: Kara Edwards 7 Annie Mccluskey (2010) A survey of adult power wheelchair and scooter users
Summary: This article is not really about the current state of the art but more about the problem. This article investigate the characteristic of the users, how they got a device and what the benefits and challenges of use are. In the survey is concluded that 1 out of 5 responders had an accident with their powered wheel chair or scooter in the last year.
article: Jesse Leaman & Hung Manh LA (2017) a comprehensive review of smart wheelchairs: past, present and future
Summary: this article describes the current state of the art in 2017. So it will probably by close to the current state of the art. It describe popular input methods. At the moment there is already a method Brain-computer interface that can detect that the user is frustrated with the system. It also describes promising methods of obstacle detection like low-tech inexpensive optical USB camera and sophisticated machine vision software. The articles also describe different operation mode like machine learning, Following, localization and mapping and, navigational assistance. The article also considers human factor in smart wheelchairs.
