Autonomous Airport Mobility Chairs

Autonomous Airport Mobility Chairs

WHILL is committing itself to make airports more accessible by introducing ints autonomous power chairs. The chairs were tested at Mineta San Jos’e International Airport. Passengers can easily ride the chairs for free by selecting a destination on the chair’s intuitive and user-friendly screen.

Once the destination is set, the device independently navigates through the terminal to its gate. When the passenger climbs off, the chair drives itself back to its base at the Security Checkpoint. The power chairs are packed with safety features. It includes an automatic collision avoidance system to ensure the safety of its riders. Thus far, WHILL has implemented the autonomous devices at various airports around the world, including Haneda InternationalAirport in Tokyo.
