This paper describes a mobile rapid prototyping system for the development and evaluation of assistance systems for wheelchair users. The realized system is capable of manipulating the driver’s input in real-time, which enables a shared control, without applying major changes to the original wheelchair. For this purpose, the user of the prototypting system does not need a detailed knowledge of the original control system as its input/output is available in an abstract manner. Thus novel assistance concepts can be easily developed and evaluated with patients under realistic conditions.
