NSK Robotic Guide Dog
Take a look at NSK's robotic guide dog. It has wheels for flat areas that, should it need to take some steps, can become utile legs. Its graspable handle is used to maintain stability and it has a sensor to identify steps by converting it to shape, position and attitude info into 3D space. Because it takes about 10 years to raise a real guide dog, this is an excellent addition to a service area that could use, um, a leg up.
