Students create driving system for paraplegics

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Georgia Tech students at the Savannah campus created a golf cart using a complex system for paraplegics. They are calling it PADS, or Paraplegic Assisted Driving System.

"What it does right now is control the ability of the driver to be able to have the car go forward and break without having to use their legs," said Associate Professor Elliot Moore.

The driver only has to use their hands to operate the vehicle. One class spent 17 weeks designing the system.
