Abstract: This paper presents Personal Mobility with assistive Walker (PM-W). PM-Wis consists of handle, handle post, position adjustable saddle, and two inwheel motors. The feature of PM-W is two mobile modes: ”walking assist mode” and ”vehicle mode”. In ”walking assist mode”, PM-W assists user’s walking by driving two wheels while user saddles on the seat and walks. In ”vehicle mode”, user controls PM-W like an electric bike or conventional senior cart. Thus, a certain control interface is needed in ”vehicle mode”. Therefore, this paper develops the interface for ”vehicle mode”. The proposed interface uses the bending strain at the root of the handle post, because the handle should not have any moving parts on it such as throttle lever or stick controller for supporting elderly’s stable posture. In order to verify the operability of this interface, the basic experiment was conducted. From the results of the experiment, it is appropriate that the interface is adopted for ”vehicle mod e”, because it can be regarded that the operability of proposed interface is equal to or more than the conventional interface.
