Researchers at Georgia Tech. have created a robot nurse that can autonomously aid elderly patients in hospitals by giving them bed baths. Cody, as its called, is equipped with a camera and laser interface; using its image processing, it identifies which area of the body needs cleaning, after which it starts wiping that body part with a cloth.

In their tests, the robot was able to remove over 96% of the ‘debris’ on human body by wiping with a very low force.
