With CanguRo, we build a new relationship between people and machines. Blessed with most advanced robotics and artificial intelligence technologies, CanguRo is an independent yet friendly creature that follows you, avoids obstacles, and comes to pick you up through a smartphone. When it transforms, CanguRo becomes not just a vehicle but a trustworthy creature like a horse. With tactically-placed force sensors, it can find rider’s intention and change its posture for smooth and quick turns. CanguRo can also communicate the rider with heartbeat-like body sonic to enhance the sense of unity.
