Trials for the first neural network aimed at detecting people and wheelchairs to support autonomous wheelchair driving  

Apr 29, 2024

The REXASI-PRO project has reached its midway point. Over the past 18 months, Aitek, along with other partners, has been dedicated to designing a safe and efficient space wherein autonomous wheelchairs, drones, and cameras represent a swarm intelligence serving people. In this video, carried out in Genoa last February 28, Aitek shows the results achieved so far in collaboration with the CNR and DFKI.  

The scope of REXASI PRO project involves developing and implementing advanced navigation solutions for wheelchair and drones in different settings, emphazing safety and efficiency in crowded environment. Aitek and CNR collaborate to design and implement a Neural Network capable of effectively detecting both individuals and wheelchairs across various scenarios.
