Conceptual Design to Transfer Handicapped People from Railway Platform to their Coaches
This paper presents engineering design model of a four wheeled vehicle used for assisting handicapped person at railway station in reaching his/her berth comfortably and safely. The project aims in achieving a reliable design which is easy to manufacture, low cost and ergonomically efficient. The project proceeds with collecting data and fixing the parameters of design, by surveying nearby railway stations and interacting with some disabled persons. All these data are summoned with engineering design principles to obtain simple, efficient and reliable design for the vehicle.
