Team 612 FIRST STEP

Team 612 runs an organization called FIRST STEP (Student in Technology Expanding Possibilities) to build wheel chairs for the disables. This year, we worked on a wheel chair for a paraplegic named Tyler. Due to his ability to use only one of his arms, a traditional wheelchair does not work well for him. We motorized a provided wheelchair to be joystick operated. We used 2 CIMS, 2 Black Jaguars, and an Arduino as the essential hardware as well as a competition 12v battery. Here are some pictures from v.1 which will improved upon by the coming fall for Tyler in the new school year. Tell me what you think.

Re: Team 612 FIRST STEP

Very cool indeed. How does the cost of this compare to an off the shelf unit ?

Do you use the regular robot batteries or something else ?

also:

Now we have FIRST STEP and FIRSTsteps here in case anyone gets confused.

But it's all good.

Re: Team 612 FIRST STEP

It is most definitely an admirable cause. Beware of the 21st century's worst word ever: liability. Best of luck to you!
