Sewak - DRDO Robot For Keeping Hospital Staff Safe

  • A team of scientists at CAIR, DRDO has quickly customized one of its robotic solutions to come up with a cost effective robot within a week. The robot is named as Sewak.
  • Sewak can be a safe alternative for the hospital staff like medical professionals and health workers taking care of the COVID-19 patients in the quarantine centres and hospitals.
  • Sewak can be teleoperated by the hospital staff from a remote location to navigate the robot in the quarantine zone and distribute food, water, medicine etc. to the affected persons.
  • Operational distance is about 30-50m (can be extended). The robot gets power from maintenance free rechargeable batteries and can work continuously for 5 hours on full charge. It has a capacity of 30 Kgs.
  • Video camera fitted in the front helps navigating to the patient’s bed.
  • Audio facility provided in the robot facilitates two-way communication between the patient and the hospital staff. This will help the hospital staff communicate with the patient to understand his/her health condition and the recovery he/she is making, explain the dosage of the medicines and comfort the patient. 
  • All this is possible while the hospital staff is positioned in a safe zone while the robot moves inside the quarantined zone.  This eliminates the risks of exposure of the infection to the frontline workers while taking care of the needs of the patients.
  • Video conferencing ability between patient and healthcare professionals is being built to provide video link between patients and hospital staff.
