LG Cloi Servebot will be deployed to Seoul National University Hospital to assist staff with carrying medical equipment such as blood samples, prescription drugs, and diagnostic reagents among other equipment, the South Korean electronics maker said.
The service robot comes in two variants -- a drawer version and a shelf version. The drawer version has been deployed at the hospital.
LG said the drawer version of the robot is suitable for hospitals, hotels, and offices as it is sized 50cm x 50cm x 130 cm and can carry up to 15kg of goods in its three drawers. The drawers have security locks and operators can also monitor the robot's movement, set its movement schedule, and view usage history.
