User just handle grips and walk, then micro controller checks sensors and let motors output torque to assist walking. Normally, user feels less weight of rolater by motor assist. On upslope or downslope, RT.2 automatically output torque to offset gravity so that user can walk like flat place. Futhermore, RT.2 outputs slight reverse torque(brake) on downhill so that user can feel safe.
