A mobility robot “NENA” which can carry one person was developed by Utsunomiya University. The robot was developed based on the concept called “Design Framework” and it allowed the robot to equip with functions needed for manual driving and autonomous running and acceptable design for people. The robot fulfilled safety required for mobility robots used in the Tsukuba Mobility Robot Experimental Zone.
