Abstract
  • This thesis describes the implementation of ultrasonic sensors to trigger a stimulus to increase peer interaction for children with disabilities using modified ride-on-cars for mobility. Modified ride-on-car technology has improved mobility for children with disabilities by effectively replicating the social benefits of a powered mobility device, yet there are opportunities to increase group-play among these children. Additionally, this thesis outlines the modifications made to the ride-on-car for future replication by families of children with disabilities. Instructions are provided in the appendix that outline step-by-step directions for completing modifications. When within a specified distance of another object – as detected by the ultrasonic sensors – the stimulus will be activated, ideally attracting other nearby children and encouraging peer interaction. This design is a feasible improvement to modified ride-on-car technology that can be replicated by families.
