Abstract

This project’s main goal is to create a roadmap on possible use of robots in future epidemics. In order to understand the current capabilities of robots within the medical field articles, videos, and any information posted on the company's website was used as reference. Our objective is to determine: if using a robot during an epidemic is currently a viable option, potential improvements to these robots to improve their performance, what benefits and/or drawback to using robots, and whether or not the robot would be accepted.
