AIRCART / Power-assisted cart

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The AIRCART, with the power of electric motors, makes it easy and safe for anyone to carry heavy objects. Human-robot interaction technology has been applied, and the results alleviate labor difficulties in everyday spaces. The user's intentions are picked up by the force sensor attached to the handle, which controls the movement (driving force and direction) of the cart in real time, so that anyone can use it intuitively without having to learn how to operate it. This technology is especially useful in dangerous downhill situations where you can safely move to the automatic braking system. AIRCART is already being used in factories, warehouses and huge bookstores.
