China Daily: Robots on the front line in the war against COVID-19

Roborn’s PEP3000 has been on duty as frontline workers screening out potential coronavirus patients by temperature decetion at the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department in Kowloon Bay since early March. PEP3000 uses artificial intelligence to support teams of human workers assigned to do everything they can to contain the spread of the disease. The team reckoned that temperature measurement in public areas will be a new norm for every person and place of business even after this global health crisis.

Roborn has produced a robot that measures body temperature. Once someone’s forehead area temperature exceeds a threshold, data will be sent to an operational centre of the robot’s owner for a fast response or follow-up. Roborn’s artificial intelligence software allows the robot to focus on a person’s head for temperature checks, unlike some products in the market which would trigger an alarm even when someone walks past holding a hot object.

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.
