Development and Control of Experimental Space Elevator Climbers
Running Control of Electrical Wheelchair
A space elevator is a physical connection from the surface of the Earth to a geostationary Earth orbit above an altitude of 36,000 km. We are developing indoor experimental equipment and space elevator climbers that have various features such as adjustable press force and altitude control.
Indoor electric wheelchairs should automatically avoid obstacles and stop at intersections to await instructions from the user. We have proposed a path semi-autonomous control method for an electric wheelchair in which an environmental map including indoor hallway intersection information is constructed and the self-position is estimated in combination with a particle ﬁlter.
