To test Ability Drive:

  1. Move the wheelchair to a safe location with plenty of clear space.  Test the wheelchair with the ATP in the seat, not the owner of the wheelchair.  Hold the 'emergency stop' button in hand while initially testing and configuring the speed and turn parameters of the chair.
  2. Calibrate eye gaze on the AAC.  See the User Documentation.
  3. Launch the Ability Drive application on the computer.
  4. First first LED on the ADT will turn blue when the computer is connected and the app is running.
  5. Look at the forward button, the wheelchair should move forward if properly configured.  The second LED on the ADT will turn blue within a second of receiving a movement command from the app.
  6. Go through the Safety Evaluation with the user. See the Safety Evaluation.
