Wenweipo: Body Temperature Detecting Robots Create Win-win Situation for Innovation and Epidemic Prevention

EMSD’s special anti-epidemic platform received 217 application in just a mere 3 weeks. The Roborn team said they contacted EMSD in late February; they were arranged to test the mobile body temperature detection robot at CSD, Transport Department, and LCSD sites respectively till 10th March. During the process, they recevied positive feedback from all units, which has helped to continue improve the robot.

ViuTV Wars #56: Will a Higher Body Temperature Effect the Immune System?

Professor Poon and Mark Mak, the Co-founders of Roborn, were interviewed by ViuTV’s “Today’s Epidemic” to introduce how Roborn’s 5G epidemic prevention smart robot with cruise system and artificial intelligence technology can detect human body temperature more quickly and accurately. It will help out in tracking related cases of suspected patients with the novel coronavirus and reduce the risk of community transmission.

MFD Academy: Epidemic Prevention Robot

Eden Lu, the Co-founder of Roborn, was interviewed by Metro Finance’s MFD Academy. He talked about the story of the 5G epidemic prevention smart robot named PEP300, and how it took the team 15 days, 20 hours each to develop the robot altogether. The temperature detecting robot is engaged with agility in deployment that demonstrates Techanization™. It is a concept advocated by Roborn, which is about integrating modern technology into ecologies.
