Universidad de las Fuerzas Armadas - ESPE, Department of Science of Energy and Mechanics, 170501Av. Gral. Rumiñahui, Ecuador
Healthcare services are in need of new tools and gadgets that could provide surveillance and people interaction of the needed ones with their surrounding environment. In order to address this problematic, an autonomous-interactive surveillance robot system is proposed in this research. RHINO (Robotic-Human Interface for the Needed Ones) was designed under particular normative and will provide commonly needed features in the healthcare field. One of the principal aspects of the device is its particular design which allows the patient to have some privacy under a surveilled environment and without causing any interference in their daily lives. Another main factor is the ability of notifying the care provider or the family of the patient with e-mail or text-sms notifications in case of abnormal activities; so that video access by provider or Skype calls by family relatives could be performed throughout RHINO.
