Handicap Helper Thymio

This project is like a wheelchair, but much more advanced for people with disabilities.   If the Handicap helper is at an upwards incline more power will go to the motors to help it up the ramp or hill.  If the Handicap helper is at a downwards ramp, less power will go to the motors to slow down the decent.  The Handicap helper can power on and power off and also avoid obstacles.  The wheelchair beeps when going backwards for safety and can be controlled by a remote control that the user holds at their their right or left hand depending on user preference.
