Abstract: A power assist system has been added to an Omni-directional Wheelchair (OMW) for helping attendants of handicapped people and elderly people, . With this addition it is possible for the attendants to deal with heavy loads, but there is a problem of operability when the attendants want to easily move OMW laterally or rotate around OMW’s Gravity Center (CG). To solve the present problem, this paper provides a fuzzy reasoning method for estimating the navigation direction according to the force added by the attendants to the handgrips of the handle of OMW. A neuro-fuzzy system (ANFIS) is used for auto-tuning of the membership functions of the fuzzy system according to each attendant’s characteristics, by using input data of attendants.
