Public Driverless Robotaxi Service in Beijing

Public Driverless Robotaxi Service in Beijing

The general public in Beijing, China, will be able to experience driverless robotaxis for the first time. Two robotaxi operators have been awarded a permit by Beijing city authorities to offer driverless services in southeastern Beijing. To ensure safety during this pilot program, a safety supervisor will sit in the front passenger seat.

Robot for Assisting the Elderly in Standing up, Walking, Sitting Down

Robot for Assisting the Elderly in Standing up, Walking, Sitting Down

A research team has developed a robot that can assist standing up, walking, and sitting down by estimating the user's state using a small number of sensors. They have developed a technique for a robot to estimate a user's state with few sensors by calculating center of gravity candidates. Knowing the state of the user, such as whether they are trying to stand up or sit down, makes it possible to provide assistance as necessary.
