U3-X Honda’s Mobility Device

-1Honda has created a new Segway like robotic mobility device called U3-X.  This device is small, lightweight and can be easily carried when not in use.

It works basically like a seat with a wheel that responds to your weight movement.

U3-X features balance technology developed through the robotic research of ASIMO and uses an incline sensor to sense weight shifts and movement.

It also uses the HOT Drive System (Omni-directional driving wheel system).  This is the world’s first wheel structure to enable movement in all directions.
