    Hi Connie, thanks for your feedback! We've tried downloaded and extracting the files on a few computers, Windows and Macs, and have had no problems. Can you explain what the issue is on your end so we can help fix it?

    IR Proximity Wheelchair Controller

    Apologies for the late reply, we just finished relocating to a new space.The IR sensors were designed with the intent to be used by the person in the chair, however an assistant has the opportunity to kill the sensors should something go wrong and stop all movement. This particular chair has 4 driver modes, and we set one of them to accept this form of control. The pucks allow for multiple configurations and easy storage.

We are currently awaiting more feedback as the new semester begins on the success of this attempt, but the goal was to facilitate left/right turning so the student could face different people in class without need of an assistant. Pending that outcome, eventually transition to full directional control.We began this project with much the same intent as your own (they look great), to give functionality to someone on a reasonable budget. I will attempt to monitor this feed more closely if you have any more questions.
