IDF16 demo. Wheelie is a hands-free solution that uses Intel RealSense technology to drive robotic wheelchairs. Wheelie allows you to set up key expressions as commands. Let's take a ride!
1-Here are the options: full-smile, half-smile, wrinkle nose, eyebrows up, kiss movement, tongue out and puffed cheek. 2-Pick up 5 of them. 3-Wheelie links the expressions to a command to drive the wheelchair: moving forward, backward, turning right, left and stop.
After a stroke some patients may have different restrictions on controlling facial muscles. Wheelie offers 7 different facial expressions to be selected, but sometimes using the head is the best way to go. Wheelie and Intel® RealSense™ can together track you head position using the pitch, the roll and yaw translating these movements into wheelchair commands.
Commands based on speech recognition are also available.
