Robots for Humanity: An accessible interface for mobile manipulation by the motor impaired
This project involves a rapidly iterating, user-integrated design process to produce a user interface and underlying autonomous capabilities, allowing a single quadriplegic user/collaborator to
physically interact with his environment through a PR2 robot. In addition, the user provides a case-study in the needs of the severely disabled with respect to potential robotic solutions. His insight into patient needs and capabilities alike allows for the design of an interface which is both effective and easy to use, and remarkably powerful as a results.
