computer engineering with community engagement,
we are creating accessible, personalized vehicles
that enable independent mobility in real-world
environments. There are few commercially available
devices for children with mobility issues to move
around on their own. Powered wheelchairs usually
are not an option for
very young children.

Project Objectives:

Manual wheelchairs can also be prohibitive. The
modified toy cars provide them independence at
a much younger age and at a fraction of what a
powered wheelchair would cost. The current number
of children in Sedgwick and Butler counties receiving
services from Rainbows United is approximately
3500. This includes children receiving services for
motor delays [3]. Therefore, a significant percentage
of these children would benefit from WSU IEEE-HKN
Go Baby Go. Young children beyond the age of three
may also benefit from modified ride-on vehicles. If
our program receives funding at the level we desire,
we guarantee that numerous families with needs will
receive our products.

1.b. Plan and prepare the ride-on vehicles while
addressing the specific needs of individual
children.

1. Provide mobility to children with physical
disabilities that otherwise impair independent
mobility.
1.a. Enhance the technology utilization in the ride-on
vehicles while ensuring they are safe and secure
for children below the age of five.

1.c. Educate parents on the basic use and
troubleshooting of the modified ride-on vehicles.
2. Introduce high school students to science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics
(STEM) disciplines as well as show how these
technologies can benefit the community. At
the same time, give these school children an
opportunity to engage in community service.
3. Continue to promote the open-sourcing of
methods used in designing ride-on vehicles and
increase the project impact.
3.a. Document all technology being implemented on
these vehicles.
