Hey,The most recent hospital robots, named RP-VITA, originate from Roomba vacuum cleaner creator irobot and Intouch Health. Like R2-D2 in Star Wars, they can wander about on their own, guided by sensors and programming that maps areas to evade crashes. Specialists can likewise explore them around Icus and different offices.Thank you!!
