Scalevo - Stair Climbing Wheelchair

I am currently in a team at ETH Zurich. We are building a powered wheelchair which is able to climb stairs!

The wheelchair is normaly balancing on two wheels to drive on flat ground or small slopes. To go up stairs it uses a set of tracks. These tracks can be tilted so they always have the correct angle to keep the person in the chair level.

We have finished all the technical drawings and have ordered most of the parts. After the exams at the end of January 2015 we start assembling the chair.
