Inside, the Wander Stand features a dashboard with mobility controls and a head-up display over glass, which can stream information to passengers in a seamless fashion. Also included is an “automatic drive” mode, which suggests the Stand can autonomously zip occupants around from place to place. A top speed was not mentioned.
The sportier Wander Walker does have a top speed however—3.7 miles per hour—and it proves itself a sleek alternative to the archetypal mobility scooter. Measuring in at just under two feet wide and around three feet tall, the Wander Walker is said to be an indoor and outdoor vehicle, compact enough to get through Japan’s train turnstiles and other tight areas. In fact, it’s so maneuverable it has a turning radius of only one meter, due to its inward-swiveling airless tires.
A tablet finds itself mounted behind the handlebars, offering up a helpful navigation system. However, the Wander Walker also features Wi-Fi, which Honda says allows family members to locate riders using their smart phones. Not a bad feature when in a crowded shopping center.
Like what you see? These certainly aren’t the only special vehicles Honda rolled out for the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. Joining them is Honda’s radical Project 2&4 concept and Neowing three-wheeler. Stay tuned for more.
