Silbo : Development Walking Assistant Robot for the Elderly Based on Shared Control Strategy

Abstract

In this paper we propose system architecture and implementation methodology of walking assistant robot for the elderly. We use shared control system based on sensor feedback. For operation user push or pull handle, than robot sense applied force. It decides velocity and direction of the robot. If obstacles are detected, robot avoids obstacles and plans new path for collision free. It can provide power assistance and safety for the elderly.
