LUCI is a smart wheelchair technology designed to help users avoid collisions and tip-overs while operating their wheelchair. How does it do that, and is your wheelchair smart? Read on to find out more about LUCI.

The LUCI technology features patented fusion sensors that combine ultrasonic, radar, and camera sensors to help map the world around you, like a second set of eyes, while driving your wheelchair. The sensors are designed to detect the edges that your wheelchair shouldn’t clear, such as curbs and stairs, plus various obstacles to avoid, such as walls, pets, and other people.

Using just ultrasonics sensors — or even a single sensor — is insufficient for wheelchair safety. Rather, combining ultrasonics, radar, and camera sensors is critical. Learn why by viewing this virtual demo, recorded at LUCI’s design and engineering studio in Denver.
