India’s Covid count hits 9 million, rise slowest since 1st

Coimbatore engineering students develop robot for contactless care of COVID patients

Amid COVID-19 scare across the globe, when the best medicine is social distancing to reduce contamination, a proactive team of six undergraduate Mechatronics engineering students of a private college, Kumaraguru College of Technology, in Coimbatore have developed a prototype called A Doctor To Be (ADTB) to act as an interface between healthcare staff and patients. ADTB is a fully automated patient monitoring robot incorporated with AI/ML and IoT concepts to enhance future access in serving, diagnosing Covid-19 patients, while also disinfecting the ward. This robot can be very helpful for the doctors as they remain in close proximity with the COVID-19 patients for their treatment.
