Development of a 4-wheel Electric Wheelchair, MonPal ML100

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.12 No.1

Summary

The MonPal ML100 is a 4-wheel electric motor-driven wheelchair developed with an aim toward achieving personal mobility while at the same time providing fun, freedom from care and comfort for those with restricted walking capabilities. It is characterized by a rearward tapering design intended to prevent the rear wheels from scraping and snagging.
The power train, which is an integrated transmission and motor type, and the control system were specially developed to provide improved slope-climbing capabilities.
Various features are incorporated in the operating system. These include an emergency stop function whereby if a driver grips the drive lever firmly, the vehicle will automatically come to stop; a sudden start prevention function that is employed to prevent mis-operation related incidents; and, a buzzer notification function.
