Drive Right: Development of a solution to enable right-leg amputees to drive large good vehicles

Project: Research


A number of the veterans who wish to re-train as Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) drivers have lost a leg. With modern automatic truck cabs, this is not a problem if it is the left leg. It is perfectly feasible and safe to drive as the right leg does all the work. If the trainee has a right leg missing / prosthetic, this is not possible. There is insufficient feedback to the driver from a prosthetic leg to enable peddle operation. The aim of this project is to further prior conceptual work into the creation of a physical prototype.
