Tug is a simple robot. It just carries objects around.
But the awesome thing is that it does it well. Finally, a robot doing something well, yeah!
Tug is the anti jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none type of robot.
Tug only specializes in carrying objects around and, thanks to this specialization, Tug is actually useful.
That’s why it makes sense for a hospital to invest in buying Tug, because it really is capable of removing a lot of the workload that until now had to be done by hospital staff.
Tug is capable of navigating a huge hospital, stopping when before an obstacle, turning where it has to, and waiting for the elevator to arrive and open its doors.
It’s not that it is going to make nurses redundant tomorrow, but it’s a step in that direction.
