TUG is a transport and service robot that securely delivers medications, lab specimens, meals, linen and disposables and carries out various logistic tasks needed in hospitals.
The robot navigates autonomously in between floors, assisted by communication with elevators and automatic doors, and does not bump into people moving in its environment.
TUG connects autonomously to various freight platforms and carts, and transports them according to pre scheduled programs or ad hoc assignments.
