The Aircart power-assist cart enables individuals with low strength to push heavy loads. Its technology is based on physical human-robot interaction. The handle contains a force sensor, which adapts the movements of the cart to the movements of the user in real time. On sloping surfaces, the automatic braking system is activated. The cart can be intuitively operated by children or adults; it might be used, for example, in libraries or warehouses.
