Pudu Robotics enables non-contact delivery in hospitals

Pudu Robotics has enabled non-contact delivery service in numerous hospitals globally via its robot Pudubot. The robot is meant to reduce the spread of the coronavirus during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Pudu Robotics has enabled non-contact delivery service in numerous hospitals globally via its robot Pudubot. The robot is meant to reduce the spread of the coronavirus during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The company has deployed its robots for use at multiple hospitals in Seoul, South Korea, Beijing, China and Wuhan, China, among others.

These robots are fully automatic, allowing them to carry out the delivery process by themselves. The delivery approach is said to effectively decrease contact between people and avoids virus spread.

Pudubot comes with multi-sensor and positioning and navigation technology. It is fitted with a large-capacity tray to facilitate delivery of medicines, meals and other supplies to patients within the hospital.

Pudu Robotics CEO Zhang Tao said: “Non-human physical contact means safety, and automation means saving human efforts. In the event of human life, these two advantages will be magnified.

“Many technology companies have played an important role in intelligent disinfection, unmanned delivery and intelligent diagnosis during Covid-19, which made an irreversible influence to the public health system.”

Founded in 2016, Pudu Robotics focuses on research and development (R&D), design, manufacture and sales of delivery robots. The company’s products are available in more than 200 cities in more than 20 countries.

Apart from hospitals, Pudu Robotics’ robots are used in restaurants, hotels and office buildings. Currently, more than 2,000 global companies have implemented Pudubot for non-contact delivery services.

Last month, US-based Novant Health, which operates 15 hospitals, launched an emergency drone operation as part of its Covid-19 pandemic response.

As part of the operation, the hospital system will provide contactless distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE) and certain medical supplies to its frontline medical teams in the Charlotte, North Carolina.
