A Robotic Wheelchair Able To Climb Steps

A demo of Chiba Institute of Technology's wheel chair concept:

"If a sensor detects a step, the robot calculates whether it can lift that leg. It can't raise its wheels right away, so the steering system at the rear makes preparatory motions to gain stability. When the wheels can be raised stably, the robot lifts its legs."
