In Japan, a robot-guide was created
Japan hosted a presentation of a robot that serves as a guide for the blind. A car about a meter high and wide at the base of centimeters 50 was developed by one of the country's private companies. Above the robot has a special handle on which the blind person puts his hand to move.
A high-tech device leads a person behind him, giving sound commands and prompting where to go. According to the NHK television company, the testing of the robot took place in one of the hospitals in the Japanese prefecture of Kanagawa. The robot, equipped with special sensors and sensors, perfectly sees all the irregularities and obstacles that may interfere with human movement.
According to some reports, the device will replace the blind guide dog in places where it is prohibited to stay with your pet. These are restaurants, shops, and also some public institutions.
