Abstract

The goal of this MQP is to ameliorate the inability of paraplegics or double-leg amputees to fully control a manual transmission automobile. The team evaluates the currently available assistive devices, establishing ways they fall short of offering full safety and control. This leads to the design and fabrication of an ergonomic interface that refines existing concepts and incorporates information gathered through research and experimental testing.
