Robot mobile pour handicapés moteurs : évaluation du système homme/machine

Abstract : In this report you'll first find the goals and specific characteristics of the V.A.H.M. project. This project meets the needs of motor impaired people as far as aid for navigation is concerned. Indeed it's very difficult, not to say impossible for some motor impaired people to pilot usual wheelchair because of ill-suited sensors, because motor impaired people get tired very quickly.... Our studies are mainly based on the importance of the man/machine cooperation. Furthermore we have defined a online evaluation method of the man/machine system which won't impede the pilot of the wheelchair. This method is based on the calculation of evaluation criteria including the robot technical capacities as well as physical and mental elements of the pilot workload, an essential notion to evaluate the man/machine system. We obtained these criteria from spy files recorded during tests made on able-bodied people. Finally our studies underline the usefulness of helping navigation for impaired people, using the qualitative and quantitative observations we made during the first clinical evaluation of the V.A.H.M.. From then on we started thinking of a way to create a module to help the wheelchair user to choose the best control mode of the mobile base according to the environment and the man/machine system
