Autonomous Wheelchair Tested At Tokyo Airport

by Anthony FalcoPanasonic is testing autonomous wheelchairs at Tokyo Haneda Airport to bring simple and safe mobility to the disabled.It works by setting up pick-up and drop-off destinations on a smartphone app. After that, the autonomous wheelchair arrives and transports the user to the chosen destination.Once done, it will pick-up the next passenger or return to a docking station.Sensors help it avoid collisions with pedestrians and luggage, and a tandem function enables the wheelchairs to travel in a group, giving disabled families the ability to travel together.The wheelchairs will be tested at Haneda through March 2018, with plans to fully deploy at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
