Paper Title
Automated Wheelchair for Increased Mobility against Architectural Barriers

Mobility has always been highly valued but autonomy in this area is impaired by disability of one form or the other.This paper focuses on a prototype model of an automated wheelchair that can traverse architectural barriers such as stairs and curbs. There are some notable modifications included in this prototype, which are: (i) Simpler and more coherent delta wheel mechanism for climbing stairs (ii) Economically feasible design (iii) A piston-adjustable reclining seat mechanism for accessing ATMís and other higher grounds The main idea behind the project is to provide a low cost stair-curb climbing wheelchair in order to enhance mobility for the disabled. The paper also contains our proposed design and specifications of the components used in the making. Index Terms - Stair climbing wheelchair, Delta wheel mechanism, Pneumatic circuit
