Self-Propelled Stroller Leads the Way to Hands-Free Parenting
This self-pushing pram concept could be a dream for jogger parents, but we have our doubts
An ambitious startup is on a mission to build baby strollers that you don’t need to push or pull. The Smartbe Intelligent Stroller is pushing ahead of Google, Tesla or other autonomous vehicle aspirants with a baby carrier that can run on its own.
Naturally, the stroller won’t be taking your babies for morning walks all on its lonesome. The Smartbe stroller wirelessly tethers itself to an adult and relies on the person accompanying it to work and navigate lanes.
Motion sensors in the stroller will locate where the adult’s position is and predict his or her motion and direction to keep a constant, safe distance. The stroller’s own motors will then navigate itself.
