Gen Endo, Ben Allan, Masatsugu Iribe, Toshio Takubo
2017 2017 IEEE International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM)  
In this paper, we evaluate the size of the robot taken on public transportation.  ...  Moreover, an initial evaluation of the robot by Home Oxygen Therapy patient on a public road is reported, suggesting effectiveness in reducing the physical burden of the patient.  ...  The intended effect is for the motor to assist the user and therefore reduce the effort required to pull the cart.  ...
