Another robot winning an award of the Fourth Robot Awards ceremony was Panasonic's new medication dispensing and delivery robots. The system consists of two separate parts. A fixed cabinet like robot is in charge to distribute the fragile ampules into separate trays for delivery, while the autonomous HOSPI is doing the delivery part. The goal is to provide help in hospitals where nursing labor is scarce. The new robot has an extra small footprint, and suitable for 200-400 bed hospitals. Panasonic's robot by braking only one in every 50 thousand ampules achieves the lowest brakage rate in the industry.
HOSPI finds its way around the hospital in a fully autonomous way. There is no need for rails or other guiding technology, the ultrasonic sensors installed on the sides and on the front of the robot provide enough information for the robot to navigate through the building, and avoid even moving obstacles, such as humans. Testing of HOSPI will start in Matsushita Memorial Hospital in December.
