Conceptual design to transfer handicapped or old people from one platform to another

Kanchan, Manu and Bansal, Ankur (2007) Conceptual design to transfer handicapped or old people from one platform to another. BTech thesis.



The problem to transfer handicapped or old people is as old as the transportation system itself. Earlier and even now they are transferred by many methods like on wheelchairs or with the help of sticks. But all these methods are time consuming and slow and also don’t have any provision for carrying the luggage. These methods are good in general use, but on platforms these cannot be used as these methods will complicate the transportation and will disrupt the free movement of the people on platforms. So here our aim is to design a system or device which will be able to transfer the handicapped people from one platform to another, within the given constraints and should also comply with the societies exiting conditions. The system may be semi-manually driven or semi-automatic or may be fully automatic. Here first of all we are defining the Statement of the problem, followed by the analyzation of the need and then we have given various alternatives we have thought off, following it is the description of different alternatives with the problems we are facing in the practical application of the alternatives. The alternatives thus produced has been evaluated and the best one was chosen. Then, morphological analysis, is done on the chosen alternative, thus giving the final design and specification.
