Abstract [en]

This report describes a thesis, carried out in collaboration with the company Permobil AB. The project was conducted as a final task in the three-year Bachelor of Science program in Computer Engineering, with specialization in web development, at the School of Engineering in Jönköping.

The project's main task was to investigate the possibilities to connect a smartphone to an electric wheelchair of the brand Permobil, and be able to operate it with the same controls that are used to control the wheelchair.

An earlier solution to use basic phone functions such as calling and texting is already accessible. However, this is a very outdated and slow solution. In consultation with the company, we decided that it was not worthwhile to further develop the old solution. Instead, a new system was to be developed where a normal smartphone would be operated.

Our goal was to develop a good enough prototype that the company could be convinced to further develop the product. A small part of the project was also to, with an inquiry; examine what functionality (read, applications) was interesting to the products potential customers.

The development of the prototype was divided into three iterations. The goal of the first iteration was to create a test application where USB communication worked, and begin to develop a control interface. In the second iteration we designed the basic structure of the application, and in the third we developed a number of basic functions, such as SMS client and phonebook.

In our report, it appears that a successful prototype has been developed, with potential for further development. Unfortunately we did not manage to collect enough information to summarize the results to a source-critical analysis of the demand. The information collected is however presented in the report, but should not be considered a safe source.
