'TIAGo' Robots Help Hospitals in COVID-19 Fight

As doctors and nurses seek hands-free ways to disinfect environments, operate equipment, and contain the spread of coronavirus and COVID-19, some hospitals have turned to robots. "TIAGo Delivery" by PAL Robotics  is able to navigate autonomously, finding the best route around the hospital and avoiding obstacles. Positioning technology from Accerion allows for faster set-up and enables smooth implementation to get the solution up and running as quickly as possible. Watch the TIAGo Delivery as it navigates through hospitals and delivers essential supplies to staff.

In Tech Briefs' Here's an Idea podcast, we talk to the researchers behind TIAGo Delivery and other robotic technologies finding a place in patients' rooms. Listen here.
