Powered wheelchairs play a vital role in bringing independence to the mobility-impaired. Our collaborative control architecture, aims to assist users in driving safely, without undermining their own capabilities. We use measures such as joystick movement, eye-gaze and secondary task performance, alongside more traditional metrics such as speed and accuracy to analyse both the system performance and the user interaction. The experiments show that the collaborative controller allows users to perform manoeuvres more safely, without the need for high levels of dexterity or attention.
