Novel Approach of Implementing Effortless Manoeuvrability in Vehicle for Physically Challenged

Automobile is a comprehensive invention which became a basic need for every human. But some modifications were necessary in automobile design in case of differently abled person. The existing vehicle comprises with usual hand twist acceleration, hand lever braking and handlebar steer control. Conventionally, three wheeled rear axles are used by physically challenged person. If the physically challenged person is about to park his/her vehicle then he/she should get down for moving the vehicle. Hence a reverse drive feature is proposed for vehicle which can help them to move in reverse direction when they are in seating position. In the authors' proposed vehicle, the acceleration can be controlled either by right hand twist accelerator in handlebar or by foot pedal. The acceleration switch determines the working of accelerators. For left hand impairment, they can switch to foot pedal acceleration. Here the rear braking is applied by left hand brake lever or foot brake pedal (to apply rear brake if they are left hand impaired).
