There are times when you just don’t feel like walking from one place to another, and this miniature sidewalk vehicle is a creative alternative to walking or taking the bus home.

The good people at Hitachi have developed a self-driving, one-man vehicle to aid people on their daily treks. The ‘Robot for Personal Intelligent Transport System,’ or ROPITS, is a self-automated wheel chair that was designed specifically for people who have a difficult time walking. This one-man vehicle only travels on sidewalks and has a maximum speed of 3.7 mph. Passengers can input their travel destinations on a map display onboard or via the owner’s mobile device.

If you’re tired at the end of the day and you don’t want to feel cramped on a bus or a subway, then this robotic wheelchair is the perfect way for you to get home.
