Aisin unveiled its vision of the future of mobility this week—featuring transportation solutions for autonomous cars, safety and security and bridging the last mile gap at its booth at ITS World Congress in Montreal.
Aisin proposes a personal scooter to better connect people to public transportation options. The battery-operated scooter on show at Aisin’s booth has four
modes. It can be ridden on top of or manually pushed like a kick scooter. It can also be used as a cart to carry heavy objects such as a box or grocery bags or folded for easy carrying.
According to Koji Goto, general manager of the project for Aisin, the scooter is completely autonomous, navigating through its environment with the help of a camera and 3D and 2D laser ranging image sensors. Data is fed into an artificial intelligence engine that identifies and avoids objects in real time. The scooter can also be controlled and secured via a mobile app.
