Artefact, a Seattle-based design firm, is bringing the hospital to patients with what it calls a hospital in a self-driving car. "Aim" aims to bring healthcare into the future with all the amenities of a hospital without the need to travel.

Aim, with artificial intelligence-enabled home technologies to track vital signs, is able to monitor a user's health and call a self-driving hospital when needed. The hospital car is able to travel directly to patient at home or work. Aim can take measurements including weight, blood pressure, body mass index and heart rate.
