Robotic nurse assistant to help with routine tasks


With support from the National Science Foundation, roboticist Dan Popa and a team of engineers and nurses at the University of Louisville are developing a new generation of assistive robots designed to help nurses care for patients in a hospital. Adaptive Robotic Nurse Assistants are being designed to help with routine tasks for patients, such as delivering items, taking them for walks, and alerting nurses to emergencies.
