|This week Exmovere Holdings has unveiled a wearable transportation device, called the Chariot. Wow, what it looks like? The robot? The Chariot is a self-balancing, hands free concept vehicle which is a wearable, sensor-activated pod designed for use by amputees and others who have difficulty standing.
Unlike other self-balancing vehicles(segway), the Exmovere Chariot is controlled by subtle movements of the lower torso and hips. Sensors inside the cocoon-like shell of the vehicle predict the intended motion of the wearer. The Chariot requires no manual dexterity, minimal physical effort and allows wearers to closely approach and reach objects. The upright form of the Chariot allows its wearer to make direct eye contact with others. The Chariot is battery powered and can travel up to 12 miles per hour.
Exmovere will also develop a feature of the Chariot that can switch the wearer from upright to seated position. Exmovere seeks to partner with an automotive manufacturer to eventually launch a performance-oriented Chariot.
