All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest airline, is to test autonomous RakuRo mobility assistance solutions at Tokyo Narita International Airport from February 27-28, 2020.
Designed by ZMP, these advanced prototypes are designed to streamline transportation and make it easier for passengers to navigate Narita Airport. According to ANA, the solutions are ideal for those who may find it difficult to walk long distances, such as passengers traveling with small children or heavy baggage.
The RakuRo autonomous mobility solution will take passengers to their selected destination, including boarding gates, duty-free shops, and restaurants.
The tests are part of an initiative from Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) to boost startups and help apply innovative technology in daily life. The tests will be carried out by ANA, ZMP and officials from Narita International Airport Corporation.
