1) The final design for how my chair will be mobile has been decided upon. I have acquired a drill, which I will be able to mount a sprocket to. This sprocket will spin a chain which will in turn drive the chair’s wheels.
2) An IR sensor will be mounted to the seat of the chair, pointing up into the area right above the base. The sensor will feed directly into the Arduino, actuating the motor control relay.
3) The basic outline for the Arduino sketch has been produced.
Electric Drill, Relay, Power cord, two axils, chain and sprocket, wheels, IR connecting cord, chair, and an Arduino
Most of the materials have been acquired. Construction will begin shortly!
