Intelligent wheelchairs will navigate on their own

from MedIndia:

Lehigh University researchers are working on a ‘smart wheelchair’ with artificial intelligence which can navigate on its own using lasers, sensors and mapping software without the need for human guidance or remote control.

[…] A key difference is that this chair will cross-reference the maps it makes of its surroundings using LiDAR and other sensors with 3-D maps that Spletzer and his team create and load into its memory.
