Mumbai students design 'Medibot' : A Robot that can deliver medicines in hospital
Posted on: 13-04-2017 , 11:40:AM | DY365 Bureau

A team of engineering students from Fr Conceicao Rodrigues College of Engineering (CRCE) in Bandra have made a robotic vending machine that dispenses medicines in hospitals.

Medibot, as the device is called, is fed with medicines and it moves from one hospital bed to the next. The patients are provided with radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags. As soon as the patient scans his tag on the RFID reader on the robot, it dispenses the medicines.

Medibot was declared as the ‘most innovative solution’ at an annual national level embedded systems and robotics competition held by Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-B) on Saturday. The competition, known as ‘eYantra Ideas Competition’ is part of an IIT-B initiative to train engineering students in embedded systems — the electronics at the heart of modern machines — to help provide practical solutions for real world problems.
