Forces, caused by the user’s body are monitored and used for the control of the platform. Robot control system determines the current location of the platform and outputs voice-synthesized navigation instructions or warnings about potential obstacles on the intended route. Good examples of that conception are the HITOMI project [27] and the PAM-AID project [28–31], [W1]. The system WHERE (Walking and moving HElper Robot system) developed at KAIST [32, 33] aims to assist the user in walking and gait rehabilitation and provides body weight support to the user.
