Human Jobs Deathwatch: Robot Nurse will deliver medication

Murata Machinery has developed a robot capable of performing many of the duties of a human nurse such as delivering medication to patients during late night hours.

Developed as a part of Japan's "Project for Strategic Development of Advanced Robotics Elemental Technologies" led by NEDO, the robot is one of six selected new robots picked that cover functions such as security, industrial work, and disaster recovery.
