Singapore aims to get a self-driving wheelchair
October 5, 2016
Singapore plans to develop an independent wheelchair that will move people around without the need for instructions.
The wheelchair will combine computer vision, robotics and machine learning to carry patients around hospitals.
The project was announced by government officials. The work will be completed by March 2017.
The idea is to let nurses focus on important jobs and reduce the time they spend pushing patients who are in wheelchairs.
Singapore is following the method adopted by Japan of using automated care for the elderly.
