Pediatric powerchair initially developed at BYU and the Open Wheelchair Foundation.
This project tracks enhancements to the chair made by Robomakery.
We welcome new contributors!
First, there is a Google Group mailing list for development discussion:
Please join that group and introduce yourself. We also have bi-weekly online planning meetings via Zoom.
If you are in the San Diego area, we also meet to discuss this project on the first Tuesday of every month as part of the San Diego Robotics Club.
