The IWARD project plans to develop a "nursebot" that carries some hats, and can manage cleaning up drips, operating face and voice recognition technology to "communicate with patients and spot unauthorized visitors," and even effective in "swarms" to allocate responsibilities between the robotic squad. Researchers are planning to have a three nursebot samples ready by 2010, and desire to combine sensors and camera to evade impacts even as "traveling along high-speed lanes in the hospital corridors."
