    Abstract

    This paper presents the results of research work carried out in the field of electronic systems for the automation of powered wheelchairs for the disabled and/or the elderly. These electronic systems have been designed to meet a wide range of needs experienced by the users of this type of wheelchairs. Several interesting features are: modularity, making them adaptable to the particular needs of each user according to the type and degree of handicap involved; interoperatibility, by using a standard Serial Bus equipments coming from different builders can be easily incorporated on-board; and environment integration, because that Serial Bus is one of the broadest in use for Building Automation.
