Abstract
A n approach towards providing advanced naviga-
tional support to robotic wheelchair platforms is pre-
sented in this paper. Contemporary methods that are
employed in robotic wheelchairs are based on the infor-
mation provided by range sensors and its appropriate
exploitation by means of obstacle avoidance techniques.
