The wheelchair has safety features and warning systems to help users better than other wheelchairs.
The wheelchair is programmed to recognize the user's voice.
It has a system to avoid crashing into something else. It also has a warning system that notices emotional stress or sleepiness in the user.
It can keep track of the user's heart rate and temperature.
