GyroSet Wheelchair Control System

Márton Juhász and Now Technologies from Hungary have worked together to develop the GyroSet, a system that allows a person to use his/her head to navigate in a wheelchair. The system is powered by an Android tablet and works in conjunction with a headset. The headset is able to detect the position of the user’s head and transmits this data to the tablet. The new technology aims to help users who are paralyzed from the neck down avoid bulky apparatus and cumbersome joysticks at the chin.
