Private and public elderly and health care facilities worldwide already face labour shortages and skyrocketing costs; and fiscally constrained governments must provide high-quality care for their seniors while keeping the costs down.

GoCart is the solution from Yujin Robot to lower cost and improve the quality of care in health and elderly care facilities. With that in mind, we automise the time-consuming task of transporting meals and other indoor supplies. This frees up time for staffs, allowing them to spend more time caring for patients and residents, while allowing care facilities to reduce their overall operational costs. At the same time, the health and elderly care staffs can spend their time for patients and residents and this will increase the level of patient experience.

GoCart, the first autonomous meal-transport robot designed to operate in all elderly and health care facilities, is a joint effort between two industry leaders; South Korea-based Yujin Robot and Sweden-based ScanBox. GoCart combines the latest autonomous navigation technology, 3D obstacle avoidance and connectivity technologies developed by Yujin Robot with state-of the-art meal transport containers developed by ScanBox. It maps the environment and uses an array of sensors and cameras to autonomously carry out its deliveries without interfering with people or other objects. In addition, depending on customer’s needs, GoCart will accompany different types of containers for different purposes.

With its IoT-based interface, GoCart can easily connects with any facility’s existing IT system and works with smartphones, tablets, PCs, and smart TVs and can control fleet of GoCart robots seamlessly.

After raising lots of interest during the GoCart demonstrations in the USA and Sweden during October and December 2015, the team now focuses on preparing field tests around the globe scheduled for Q3 2015 to prove GoCart’s feasibility and performance. GoCart will be globally available in the market in 2016.
