The Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Government Hospital in Jaipur is conducting the series of trials on a humanoid robot to provide services to the COVID-19 patients. It is aimed to keep the doctors and nursing staff at a safe distance to protect them against the dreaded coronavirus. It has been designed with a tray that can be used for carrying medicines, food and other objects to the assigned patients.
The robot is battery-operated and has a life span of 4-5 years. The humanoid robot uses artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to navigate its own way without the instructions to follow lines on the floor. A Jaipur-based entrepreneur has offered to supply the humanoid robots for free of cost to the hospital as part of corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative.
