Mingpao Interview: Locally Developed Epidemic Prevention Robot Automatically Blocks People with Fever

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.

Roborn successfully developed 5G Epidemic Prevention Smart Robot

Regarding the current outbreak of novel coronavirus, Roborn successfully developed 5G Epidemic Prevention Smart Robot (PEP, Professor Epidemic Prevention) to ease the pressure on frontline medical staff. On 8 Feb 2020 (the Lantern Festival) , Hong Kong TVB News conducted a special interview with the Roborn team on the 5G Epidemic Prevention Smart Robot.

Wenweipo: 5G Epidemic Prevention Smart Robot to Facilitate Temperature Detection

Most fixed infrared temperature detection devices available in the market basically rely heavily on manpower to determine the temperature with their naked eyes. As a result, human errors may occur easily and targets may be missed. Witnessing the situation, Prof. Larry Poon Ka-Yeung and Dr. Mark Mak Hin-Yu led their team to develop a 5G epidemic prevention smart robot which can complete tasks such as measure temperature, provide instant alert, deliver epidemic information etc.

With the currently raging novel coronavirus epidemic, Roborn responded to the market contingency by developing a 5G Epidemic Prevention Smart Robot, which has already been introduced to a local medical centre. Roborn’s founders believe that technology innovation is a process of constant devotion. Only through constant devotion can they remain competitive.

Roborn developed a 5G Epidemic Prevention Smart Robot, combating the epidemic with technology. Once it detects someone with fever, it will immediately keep a record of the time, place, and location of this key contact point to enhance tracing those in close contact with the person. Using AI technology, it can accurately detect human heads, which lowers the risk of contact infection brought by manual operation.

The robot is separated into several structures and can be moved to various locations to detect the body temperatures of different people. At the same time, it comes with a sensor which prevents itself from knocking over pedestrians and obstacles. Inside the trunk are the AI host, electric circuits, and batteries. Complemented with the 4K and thermal imaging lens at the top, the robot can accurately recognize human faces even when they are wearing masks. If the robot detects a person with abnormal temperature, it will keep a record of the image and issue alert to remind related staff to pay attention.

i-Cable News: Hong Kong based technology firm invested millions in developing 5G Epidemic Prevention Smart Robot

Last year was marked as the start of 5G era in Mainland China. Following the momentum of last year, how will it develop this year? It is worth noting that scope of 5G-compatible products has now extended to robotics. In response to the outbreak of coronavirus, the Roborn team spent 15 days in developing a 5G epidemic prevention robot to identify potential patients in the community

Furthermore, the robot comes with an AGV mobile platform which can keep a record of the entire path just by moving around a venue once. Afterwards, it can move around automatically and navigate by itself. Users can also set time and petrol mode according to their needs. Mak added that the epidemic prevention robot can be operated under Wifi and 4G networks and is compatible with 5G.
