To increase focus on hygiene and remind visitors to sanitise their hands, Odense University Hospital developed two hand sanitiser robots that drive around the lobby of the hospital and the lobby of the Children's Hospital.
The robot has two standard sanitiser dispensers, an information board and a speaker that reminds visitors to sanitise as well as to keep their distance and walk to the right in the corridors.
The robot was further developed by Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), and similar robots are now distributed to other hospitals in Denmark.
Currently, a version 2.0 with video screen is under development.
The robot was created in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Southern Denmark, which initially made a robot available for development and testing.
