The prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences () Delhi is all set to test to contain the spread of the COVID-19 amongst doctors and healthcare workers.

Towards, this effort, AIIMS Delhi in partnership with will deploy advanced AI-powered robots – iMap 9 and Humanoid ELF – in the advanced COVID-19 ward.

“Milagrow Floor Robot iMap9.0 & Milagrow Humanoid will be tried at AIIMS Hospital New Delhi,” said Randeep Guleria, Director of AIIMS.

Milagrow said that its iMap 9 is a floor disinfecting robot that can navigate and sanitize the floors without any human intervention. The company claimed that it can destroy COVID spores on floor surfaces using a sodium hypochlorite solution, as recommended by ICMR.

The robot moves around autonomously without falling, avoiding obstruction while planning its own path, guided by LIDAR and advanced SLAM technology.

The company said that Milagrow’s Real Time Terrain Recognition Technology (RT2RT) scans at 3600, 6 times per second to make a floor map in real time with an accuracy of upto 8mm over a 16m distance. This enables the iMap 9 to perform successfully in the first attempt.

On the other hand, the Milagrow Humanoid ELF helps doctors to monitor and interact with contagious COVID-19 patients remotely with no person-to-person contact, thereby significantly reducing the transmission risk.

The company said that bored patients in isolation wards can also interact with their relatives from time to time through this robot. The Humanoid ELF can navigate around the ward independently and record the activities in high definition video and audio.
