Bar-Ilan University Using Autonomous Transportation To Carry Coronavirus Patients — Amizur Nachshoni
Amizur Nachshoni focuses on the combination of free shooting and commercials. My approach is to always seek the perfect light in surrounding places - constantly striving to get the best shot!
The Smart Cities Center at Bar-Ilan University is expected to begin experimenting with an autonomous minibus that can accommodate patients infected with COVID-19 and medical equipment. The autonomous shuttle will be operated remotely without a driver or operator and will transport patients for medical purposes while eliminating direct interaction between patients and hospital staff, and stopping emergency workers and drivers from infection. There will also be an evaluation of the use of the autonomous vehicle to carry drugs, laundry, and food to corona-isolated hospital sites.
The project will be performed by a team headed by Prof. Eyal Yaniv, Director of the School of Business Administration and Director of the Bar-Ilan University Smart Cities Centre along with the technophile Amizur Nachshoni.
“We’re proud to be at the forefront of autonomous travel science and development and its adaptation to battle the coronavirus, ” said Zohar Yinon, CEO of the University.
The autonomous shuttle, manufactured by NAVYA in France, was recently imported into Israel and will run under a joint venture with an Israeli subsidiary of ST Engineering in Singapore and BWR Israel.
The research will be carried out in conjunction with the transport ministry. The shuttle is scheduled to be relocated to the Bar-Ilan University campus for study purposes in the coming months and will bring students across the campus.
