Abstract

A concept for a stair climbing wheel chair capable of moving in structured and unstructured environments, climbing over obstacles and going up and down stairs. The design of the wheelchair consisting of a frame, a seat and a six DC geared motor linkage mechanism that connects frame and seat. The six DC geared motor linkage moves and rotates the belt, the wheel chair from overturning and to guarantee a comfortable posture to the passenger during different operations. When the wheelchair faces an obstacle such as a step or a stair, it can passively change locomotion mode, from rolling on wheels. The person who lose legs or permanently handicapped person who have no control on their legs, they are used to move one place to another place using various types of wheel chair. But in that types of chairs stair climbing function is not provided and they faces so much problems. In this paper, present the stair climbing wheelchair which can be operated by handicapped person without any help of support systems or persons. In this design the center of gravity of whole device will be transferred to the back side of wheelchair. It consists of pulley-rubber crawler mechanism. Automation can be achieved through computers, motorized, hydraulics, pneumatics, robotics, etc., of these sources, motorized form an attractive medium for low cost automation. Automation plays an important role in automobile. Now a day’s almost all the machines are being atomized in order to product the human being.
