-Happy Silver Christmas project to be held on December 24th and 25th-

Robocar® Walk on public roads (sidewalks)

ZMP Inc. in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo (CEO, Hisashi Taniguchi) to hold free trial session of the mobility partner "Robocar® Walk" for senior citizen in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo on December 24th and 25th.

Robocar® Walk is a new travel partner. Users can move to their destinations by simply specifying their destination using the tablet provided.

ZMP does Robocar® Walk driving experiments on public roads (sidewalks) in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, where the office is located. While driving in this area with many slopes, we recieved many voices from elderly people, such as "I want to ride" and "When can I use it?". Robocar® Walk, which can move to the destination autonomously, not only improves the daily mobility challenges, but also allows for more freedom of movement. In order to meet these expectations, we will hold a free trial meeting as a “Happy Silver Christmas Project” and will start accepting applications today.
