Nigerian students build Coronavirus care robot

Students from the robotics team at the Glisten international academy in Abuja, Nigeria have created a Coronavirus care robot named ‘MAIROBOT’.

The robot would transport medicine for patients and allow medical workers communicate with them via a webcam and screen. It could also take temperature of patients by scanning their faces. In the future, it is hoped that it would help treat Covid-19 remotely.

In a report done by Abraham Achirga of Reuters, he stated that the robot is a remote controlled cabinet on wheels decked out with a vibrant floral pattern. The team working on the robot said they are currently working on the upgrade of ‘MAIROBOT’ .

Currently, for ‘MAIROBOT’ to operate effectively, the hospital room doors have to be opened so the robot could come into it. It could also carry medications which would be self-administered by patients under the guidance of nurses.

Nabila Abbas, one of the major creators, said “I hope MAIROBOT can curb and reduce the risk that health personnel get- I want health workers to be safer’

  1. This is really nice, we hope so too. It’s saddening losing health personnel who did everything to save lifes to the same thing they are saving us from.
