A robot that can feed physically disabled people has been invested by students from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in collaboration with their counterparts from the University of Cape Coast (UCC).
Robot That Can Feed People Without Hands
It was gathered that the innovative students collaborated together to produce a robot that has Artificial Intelligence and is able to read body language in order to feed people who are unable to use their hands due to some form of disability.
Prince David Nyarko, the winner of Best Student in Engineering in Ghana 2020 and the president of Physics Students Association of Ghana, disclosed this on his LinkedIn page.
Sharing a video of the machine feeding a little girl without hands, Nyarko wrote: “University of Cape Coast and Kwame Nkrumah’ University of Science and Technology, Kumasi students develop Ghana’s first AI Social robot to assist persons with disabilities.”
How People Reacted To The Innovation
Tebson Haruna Mohammed, a Biomedical Science student said: “A great impacts and innovative design from you guy’s.. Now gov. Must support this to make some available for the rural and marginalised disabilities with no funds….”
Joyce Evelyn Graham, an HR Generalist commented, “All things are possible to them that believe and work at it. This is very impressive.”
