Navia, OneWheel.


Autonomous passenger carrier: Induct has introduced its driverless e-shuttle Navia to the U.S. market at CES. It carries up to eight people and drives autonomously at 12.5 mph (19.1 km/h). Navia is charged inductively and uses robotics, laser mapping technology and sensors to safely make its way through unknown terrain. It is already in use in Europe and Asia.

Self-balancing skateboard: Inspired by the hoverboard from the movie “Back to the future”, the start-up Future Motion is looking for investors in their Onewheel. It is controlled by bodyweight, using gyroscopes and accelerometers. With eleven kilos and a running time of 20 minutes, its usefulness seems to be a bit limited though.
