In this paper we propose a system where machine and human cooperate at every situation via a reactive emer-gent behavior, so that the person is always in charge of his/her own motion. Our approach relies on locally evaluating the performance of the human and the wheelchair for each given situation. Then, both their motion commands are weighted according to those effi-ciencies and combined in a reactive way. This approach benefits from the advantages of typical reactive behav-iors to combine different sources of information in a simple, seamless way into an emergent trajectory
