Hitachi's Robot for Personal Intelligent Transport System is a tiny, self-driving vehicle that can help the elderly or mobility-challenged people navigate sidewalks and pedestrian areas. The rider can enter a destination on the vehicle's computer and a GPS navigates the car. The robot features a joystick that lets passengers override the computer in an emergency.
