RakuRo features an interface that enables communication with the surroundings, in addition to the autonomous driving function that runs autonomously.
The front panel of the RakuRo is equipped with an LED panel that indicates your intentions around you, and you can convey RakuRo's actions to your surroundings with expressions such as moving forward, turning left and right, and stopping. By designing the robot with eyes and giving facial expressions, it is a design that easily blends into the public road (sidewalk) environment where people coexist.
Also, since it is equipped with an Autonomous Driving function, unlike senior cars and electric wheelchairs, there is no need for manual operation using a joystick, and there is no risk of accidents.
Steering is possible with two front wheel tires, enabling small turns. The battery can also run for about 4 hours with a 1-hour charge.
