Daedong and Yeungnam University Medical Center sign MOU to work together on a new hospital robot and mobility system


-. Daedong to help build a robot and mobility system that allows hospital visitors to receive medical services while moving around the hospital easier than ever
-. Daedong LSV and smart robots featuring autonomous driving and central control functions deliver patients and visitors safely to their destinations without walking
-. Daedong also looking into developing customized delivery robots required at hospitals to transport various items, medicine, and meals


Daedong has embarked on a new project to develop an autonomous driving robot and mobility system that could help patients seek and receive the medical attention they need at hospitals without having to walk.
Daedong (Co-CEOs Kim Jun-sik and Won Yu-hyun) announced on November 9 that it signed an “MOU on Hospital Smart Robot & Mobility Business Cooperation” with Yeungnam University Medical Center (President Jong-Yeon Kim) to offer more convenient transportation services to hospital patients using LSVs with autonomous driving capabilities and smart chair robot developed as part of the group's future business.

Daedong Group has managed to internalize core mobility and robotics technologies such as automation, electrification, and intelligence, and is now accelerating its development of mobility for personal, last mile, leisure, and gardening purposes. The company also develops specialized industrial robots such as indoor and outdoor autonomous transport robots for agricultural and non-agricultural use, multipurpose agricultural robots, and POSCO. To this end, this year, the KAIST Joint Mobility Research Center completed its demonstration of an autonomous driving Low Speed Vehicle (LSV) for low-speed movement and logistics delivery in outdoor facilities and urban areas. Also, during the third quarter of last year, in collaboration with the Daegu Art Museum, Daedong successfully completed a customer experience event for a smart chair robot with a docent function that allows each robot to autonomously move to designated works across the museum and deliver relevant commentary using audio-visual content.

 

Using LSVs with autonomous driving capabilities and smart chair robot developed as part of the group's future business, Daedong (Co-CEOs Kim Jun-sik and Won Yu-hyun) announced on November 9 that it signed an “MOU on Hospital Smart Robot & Mobility Business Cooperation” with Yeungnam University Medical Center (President Jong-Yeon Kim) to offer more convenient transportation services to hospital patients.

The MOU invites Daedong to build and demonstrate an unmanned robot and mobility system in cooperation with the Yeungnam University Medical Center to help hospital patients move from the parking lot to the annex building using an autonomous LSV without having to walk, and use a smart robot chair to find a particular clinic or administrative department inside the hospital. The product will be equipped with a Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) central control system through which the operator can check information such as operating status, location, malfunctions, etc. in real-time at the control center. The V2X system will also support immediate action when a problem occurs, thereby providing safer transportation services for patients. Daedong plans to prioritize the development of robots and mobility for transportation purposes to gain more insight into the hospital’s operating system, identify its needs, and develop customized robots that can deliver various items, medicine, and meals.
