This is a CanguRo Mobility Robot. It was designed by Shunji Yamanaka and manufactured by fuRo (Future Robotics Technology Center). It is dated 2018. Its medium is aluminum.

CanguRo represents a new relationship between people and their vehicles in the era of artificial intelligence (AI). Akin to a mechanical horse, this self-driving personal mobility vehicle functions as a loyal robot. It is equipped with the latest robotics and AI technologies that enable it to serve as an autonomous assistant that responds to commands, functions as a communications terminal, accompanies its owner shopping, and carries loads. It can also transform into ride mode to transport its user.
