Malaysian Research Institute on Ageing (MyAgeing™), Universiti Putra Malaysia, collaborated with MyOHUN has developed an autonomous platform to provide an alternative to regular deliveries without human involvement, such as medicine and food in institutional living. This is one of the approaches to prevent and lower the risk of COVID-19 infection among older persons as it practices physical distancing and minimized direct physical contact.

On 15 And 17 September 2020, 24 participants consist of older persons and caregivers of aged care homes have joined the Workshop on Operation of Autonomous Platform for Contactless Delivery for Older Persons. The workshop was conducted at the MyAgeing TM. The workshop was divided into two sessions where the morning session covers the theory while the evening session was a demonstration on how to handle the autonomous platform. The project was led by Assoc. Prof. Ir. Dr. Siti Anom Ahmad, Director of MyAgeing.
