Labor shortage is becoming a serious issue. As such, demand for robots that can live in harmony with people and help out where necessary is on the rise. In 2013, Panasonic introduced to the market our "autonomous delivery robots for hospitals, HOSPI" which delivers medicines and specimens within hospitals. After field experiments at airports and hotels, we then introduced 3 new models in 2019—the new HOSPI, one equipped with signage on 3 sides, the "HOSPI Signage", and "HOSPI Cargo" with a larger cargo carrying capacity.
We will continue to help create a safe, secure, and convenient society by providing a diverse range of personal care robots (living assistance robots).
