Abstract
A key issue in autonomy assistance is mobility, as mobility impairment has proven to cause a downward trend in quality of life. Assistive devices mostly differ on user interfaces, sensory–motor hardware, and algorithms to share control between the user and the device. This work reviews current approaches to assisted wheelchair navigation. It also presents experimental evaluation of the performance of different users presenting different pathologies depending on how much control they exert over...
