Driverless Wheelchairs Being Tested In Singapore

June 27, 2018

Could there really come a day when driverless wheelchairs won’t be a disabled journalist’s April Fool?

There’s been a lot of talk about driverless cars, but are driverless wheelchairs a more realistic short-term prospect?

Researchers from the National University of Singapore and MIT say technology can help give wheelchair users more mobility and therefore greater independence.

My disability means I can’t self-propel a manual wheelchair. I have no sense of direction, as a result of my disability, so I will never be able to use an electric wheelchair.

That’s why I,  for one think such a day would be an amazing one.
