Robot dog talks to coronavirus patients

The Challenge:

Keeping our healthcare workers safe around infected patients.

The Solution:

Very good robot dog helps healthcare workers talk to coronavirus patients – per Mashable
Robot cars were already helping transport medicine. Now, robot dogs are helping protect healthcare workers from the coronavirus.
Spot, a four-legged robot from robotics company Boston Dynamics, is being put to use at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Massachusetts during the coronavirus pandemic. In a paper released Thursday, Boston Dynamics explained how the quadruped bot was quickly transformed into a medical worker in a matter of weeks.
With an iPad and two-way radio on the robot, healthcare workers video conference with patients and remotely control Spot as the robot dog walks through rooms with infected or potentially infected patients.
