Japan airport starts tricycle patrols


One of Japan's major airports has introduced single seat electric tricycles that will be used to patrol the airport halls and information desks.

The tricycles, developed by Toyota, can operate at a top speed of 15 kilometres per hour.

Some of those used at Chubu Airport will also carry emergency medical kit and computers that will allow airport staff to check flight schedules for passengers.
