Seoul, Korea, October 28, 2015 - South Korea-based Yujin Robot (KOSDAQ: 056080), a leader in delivering robotic solutions, unveiled GoCart V2.0 (http://gocart.yujinrobot.com/), the 2nd version of GoCart, the autonomous meal-transport robot designed to operate in all elderly and health care facilities.
Based on the feedback received during trade show participations and demonstrations in Germany, USA and Sweden last year, Yujin Robot’s Innovation Team moved forward developing a larger and stronger GoCart version to better meet their customers’ needs.
With this new GoCart V2.0 the Innovation Team travelled to Spain in order to conduct a field test during September 10 - 23, 2015. The field test has been carried out at Ave Maria Foundation, a care facility for people with intellectual disabilities located in Sitges, in conjunction with Robotnik Automation S.L.L. and the Robotics Institute for Dependency.
During the field test the team worked closely with the staff and managers at Ave Maria to find out the facilitys needs in meal, linen and other daily logistics and developed service scenarios to save time, cut costs and further improve the care of the residents. In addition, Yujin Robot and Ave Maria hosted a successful demonstration for local visitors from the city of Sitges and representatives from hospital, hotel and business associations.
The feedback from managers and staff at Ave Maria was very positive and they expressed their strong interest in adopting the GoCart system in their facility. Yujin Robot and Ave Maria agreed to collaborate further on the commercialization of GoCart system. Robotnik Automation worked closely with Yujin Robot and Ave Maria on system integration and will continuously provide professional technical service in EU region.
GoCart combines the latest autonomous navigation and mobility technologies developed by Yujin Robot with state-of the-art meal-transport systems developed by ScanBox. GoCart has unprecedented flexibility and ease of use. 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. With its IoT-based interface, GoCart easily connects with any facility’s existing IT system including elevators and automatic doors and works with smartphones, tablets, PCs, and smart TVs.
