The Strasbourg University Hospital in France uses metal roll containers in combination with AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicle) robots for the distribution of medical supplies and equipment within its healthcare center.
These roll containers are wheeled containers used to store and move various medical supplies and equipment, ranging from cleaning supplies to laboratory supplies and specialized medical equipment.
The AGV robots are programmed to move the roll containers from one location to another within the hospital. The robots are controlled by a centralized system that instructs them when and where to move the roll containers.
This combination of metal roll containers and AGV robots provides a highly efficient transport and distribution solution for the hospital. It allows for faster and more precise delivery of medical supplies and equipment to different areas of the hospital, reducing wait times and increasing efficiency in inventory management and logistics. Additionally, by reducing the time and number of people involved in manually transporting supplies and equipment, it improves safety and minimizes the risk of injury to personnel.
In summary, the use of metal roll containers with AGV robots at the Strasbourg University Hospital is an example of how automation and technology can improve logistics and inventory management in a hospital environment, enhancing the quality of medical care and efficiency in the use of resources.
