Mobile AGVs for Nursing Homes
Nursing home personnel can save both time, steps and heavy lifting thanks to a mobile robot, which drives around and picks up waste from the elderly at the nursing home, Engparken, at the Ikast-Brande municipality in Denmark.
The robot is also instrumental in reducing unpleasant smells from the waste as it removes it more often than would be possible manually. A robot from Mobile Industrial Robots has automated waste collection at the Danish nursing home Engparken in central Jutland. The mobile robot, named Roberta by the personnel, has become a natural part of everyday life.
It tools around with a grated cage on its ”robot back” and collects malodorous waste within the six departments at the nursing home.
The robot with the product name MiR100 has been developed by Mobile Industrial Robots in Odense, Denmark, and is gaining momentum as a mean to optimize internal transportation both in the manufacturing industry, supply chain management, and within nursing and healthcare.
