A robotic vending machine to distribute medicines, has been developed by a team of engineering students from Fr Conceicao Rodrigues College of Engineering (CRCE) in Bandra. The device is called Medibot. It is made full with medicines and then it moves from one hospital bed to the next. Radio-frequency identification tags are given to patients. The tags are similar to tokens of Mumbai Metro, that includes the data of the quantity of medicines that have been prescribed to patients. Patients have to just scan the tag on RFID reader on the robot, and it dispenses the medicines.

At an annual national level embedded systems and robotics competition held by Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-B) on Saturday, Medibot was declared as the ‘the most innovative solution.’  The competition, known as ‘eYantra Ideas Competition’ is part of an IIT-B initiative that trains engineering students in embedded systems- the electronics at the heart of modern machines – in order to provide practical solutions for real world problems. – Courtesy
