Huawei, in cooperation with Thailand National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Communication (NBTC) and Siriraj Hospital, have started a project dubbed ‘Unmanned Vehicle Pilot Project Driving Thai Healthcare to 5G Era’. The project aims to test an unmanned vehicle in a Thai smart hospital. The self-driving delivery vehicle leverages 5G services from Huawei to provide a contactless delivery service of medical supplies.
The service can replace manpower in logistics services as it can operate in complex environments. The autonomous car is designed to provide services while reducing workload for healthcare workers and improving patient safety. The 5G technology integration is expected to be gradually introduced in Thailand’s national health system for smart hospital transformation in near future.
