Gowithrobo is a Korean company that is building robots to enable blind individuals to navigate.
Gowithrobo has a robot equipped with a camera to stream the video. This allows the operating agent to see as if is present at the location. The agent then helps with directions, drives the robot, and describes the surroundings. The trained agent guides the blind and allows them to navigate by controlling the robot via a 4G LTE network.
The robot is currently under development. It is planned to be the first self-driving robot on any land where a person can walk and required a certain amount of driving data. Two products that have been developed are: GoWithRobo Guide Rover, and GoWithRobo Hope App.
