Mobile robotics to transfer hours of transport to the attention of people

The DeliveryBot project aims to obtain an innovative technology-based solution able to allow residences to reduce hours of transportation of materials to transfer them to care activities of people, improving the quality of service and reducing costs.

The solution will include a fleet of mobile robots with a load capacity of up to 100kg, various transport carts (food, clean clothes, dirty clothes and others) and a fleet management software. The robots will be placed under a cart, will elevate it and will transport it to its destination in an unassisted and secure way, sharing aisles and elevators with people (workers, customers, residents…).

This project is aimed at residences for the elderly and people with disabilities. The improvement in efficiency that this project provides is transcendental in a sector that has been particularly affected by the crisis that we have been experiencing since 2007, and that has led to a sharp reduction in income from public administrations, which have also accumulated a great debt with each entity.

It has caused an increase in efficiency and productivity, cost savings, increased staff hours dedicated to direct attention to people to the detriment of hours dedicated to tasks with little added value, improvement in the quality of service.
