Highlights of Products
Development of SONA™ Service Robot
The team of Club First Robotics believes in “serving the nation”. At the time when the world was gripped by COVID-19 pandemic, Club First Robotics developed SONA™ 2.5 Robot Nurse. For the first time in the world, robot SONA 2.5 started serving food, medicines and essentials to patients and XENA™ ELI was used for thermal screening. The 24 hrs seamless work of SONA™ 2.5 Robot made a new tech line for Indian robotics in the world. More than 40 robots have been deployed in various hospitals in Gujarat. Most of the CSR including L&T hydrocarbon Engineering, Larsen & Toubro Limited, JUVNL, GETCO, DGVCL & IOCL came forward to donate robot nurses in various hospitals. The Gujarat CSR Authority played the main role as implementing agency toward this unique and tech initiative against the pandemic.

Over the last few years, the number of deaths while workers were cleaning sewers, manholes and septic tanks have increased. In fact, 2019 saw the maximum number of deaths in the past five years. The officials claim that 110 workers were killed while cleaning sewer lines and septic tanks across the country. In 2018, the number of fatalities was 68. This is nauseating because the number of deaths has increased despite the Union Government enacting a law for the protection of scavengers in 2013. The Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act has put to end the practice of any form of manual cleaning, carrying, disposing of or handling of human waste.
