---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of a powered wheelchair that allows individuals with mobility disabilities to transition from a sitting to a standing position. Researchers at National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan have developed a battery-powered, joystick-controlled wheelchair that transitions from a sitting to a standing position with a push of a button. Additionally, the device has sensors built in that monitor blood pressure and respiration of the user. The i-Transport features a drive-in design for easy transfer to and from a bed or chair. The control system includes a robotic arm, an electric-driven vehicle wheel, and an operator control panel. The control and drive system includes DC motors for robotic arms, rim motor drives, operator control panel interface circuit and the FPGA-based intelligent control chip. The FPGA chip is the core component of the system containing a Nios II multi-core processor, circuits. The i-Transport's chief safety feature is a warning mechanism that is designed for a set of physiological signals which can be quantified into physiological parameters in order to compare theoretical values and clinical data within the monitoring platform's software.
