EMSD launched an anti-epidemic thematic page on their platform to reach out to innovation and technology companies for the development of new technology projects to fight against the epidemic. Among the projects, Roborn’s mobile body temperature detection robot can quickly identify the potentially infected within the community. The robot has been used at the main entrance of the EMSD headquarters since the beginning of this month.
To prevent the epidemic from spreading, EMSD reached out to innovation and technology companies for the development of new technology projects on fighting the epidemic through an online platform. Earlier on, Roborn developed a mobile body temperature detection robot which has been arranged to test at various government departments, such as the Correctional Services Department, Transport Department and Leisure and Cultural Services Department. It is hoped that these robots can be used at various government venues to reduce the work pressure of frontline staff.
With the ongoing novel coronavirus, taking one’s temperature has become a necessary action in our daily lives. Roborn Technology, a technology enterprise in Cyberport, developed the nation’s first 5G epidemic prevention smart robot which can automatically detect temperature. The robot can move at a speed of 1m/s. At the top are thermal imaging lens, which can detect body temperature within five meters. As soon as it detects a person with fever, it will immediately issue an alert and prevent the person from moving elsewhere. The robot has already been introduced to local medical centres for trial use.
