---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: A prototype based on Toyota’s advance collision detection technology for cars has been developed by researchers at Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology for wheelchair users. The “Intelligent Wheelchair” has a set of cameras pointed in all directions mounted above the head of the rider to provide a complete 360-degree field of view. If the cameras detect potential hazards nearby, the wheelchair will slow down or come to a complete stop. The Intelligent Wheelchair also has WiFi capabilities which can eventually be used for transmitting video feeds to a cell phone and also provides a means of remote control.
