Robots And Smart Helmets Deployed To Fight The Coronavirus Outbreak
Robots and artificial intelligence are being deployed across the globe in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
Robotics is being used to sanitize hospitals, some of which use ultraviolet to clean, in a bid to minimize health workers exposure to the coronavirus.
In China, robots are being used in hospitals to deliver food and medication and take patients temperatures. Drones are deployed to transport supplies, spray disinfectants and do thermal imaging.
Police officers were also recently issued smart helmets with facial recognition technology and an infrared camera that automatically detects body temperature.
Beyond checking body temperature, artificial intelligence is being used to diagnose SARS-CoV-2. Infervisionb , software that automatically detects symptoms via CT scan images, can make diagnoses quicker and reduce the risk of human error.
