Iranian engineers develop intelligent suitcase
Iranian robotic engineers have created the world’s first intelligent suitcase.
The suitcase is named Olive. Since it has a two-wheel balancing system, it can also carry its owner to the destination.
It has a Segway-like, self-balancing auto-locomotion system that maintains stability, while riding on two wheels using 3D accelerometers and gyroscopes. With the help of an inside camera, it can build up a visual map of its surroundings and follow its owner.
The engineers say Olive can distinguish individuals even in crowded environments. It can provide reminders, tell its owner to hurry if time is short, and has a scale that will warn about extra weight.
