Stand-alone vehicles help deliver coronavirus test specimens

Mayo Clinic - an American medical organization, tests autonomous capsules, which deliver samples with conducted tests for coronavirus. This should speed up the examination process and relieve the burden on medical facilities.

NAVYA self-contained vehicles are being tested throughout Jacksonville, Florida, to transport samples from coronavirus tests. They must move between the test sites and Mayo Clinic headquarters.

Fully automatic machines are driven by electric motors. The autonomy allows them to travel their own route, but the samples are unloaded with the help of physicians. A special team constantly monitors the vehicles from the mobile command centre.

At the moment, this technology is being tested and allows for a significant unloading of traffic congestion. Despite the fact that 4 autonomous vehicles are currently being tested and are still taking turns on routes, local authorities are already considering their implementation.
