Project report


SmartWalker is a high-tech extension of a walker that aids people of reduced mobility in moving around. Equipped with sensors and actuators, the walker is currently able to move to user-defined destinations. The goal of this project is to develop an algorithm for gesture recognition for the walker, using the walker's PrimeSense 3D Sensor as the input device. This work will enable the walker to interact with its user more naturally and to find its destinations autonomously.
