Arduino Wheelchair Project: Motorized Controller Mount

This was an Arduino wheelchair project we developed for Principles and Practices of Assistive Technology (PPAT) in Fall 2016 at MIT. We made an Arduino-based motorized wheelchair controller mount for our client, Lisa. She lives at the Boston Home, a center for people with progressive neurological diseases, and has Multiple Sclerosis. With her old controller mount, she would often bump into sinks and tables ...

Arduino + Compass Module 3-Axis HMC5883L

Background In this blogpost we’re going to deal with the Compass Module 3-Axis HMC5883L from Parallax and how to integrate it into an Arduino. The Compass Module 3-Axis HMC5883L is designed for low-field magnetic sensing with a digital interface. This compact sensor fits into small projects such as UAVs and robot navigation systems. The sensor converts any magnetic field to a differential voltage output on ...
