tionwide cope with a difficult experience."

JR is based on Aethon's TUG, a mobile autonomous robot that transports medical equipment and supplies. JR has drawers in its "caboose" from which medications can be drawn by nurses. The robot also features a conductor who speaks to children with the voice of legendary voice over actor Don LaFontaine. "Look out, here I come," "Thanks, from the bottom of my caboose," "Pardon my caboose, I'm turning around," "Engines revved and ready to go," and "Choo choo, gotta run" are among the phrases JR speaks.

"Our JR TUG makes the delivery of equipment and supplies more efficient while offering some cheer to our young patients," said Tom Lausten, director of Pharmacy Services at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. "In addition, staff is able to focus on patient care without having to worry about the logistics of delivery."
