Robots that detect fever, distribute hand sanitizer, sterilize spaces, deliver groceries and even answer medical questions about the coronavirus are a business option that some robotics companies have found in the new scenario that opens with covid-19.
reliable robotics director of robotics and intelligence, aswin sarang, grabbed four of the robots they had prepared, changed the software and turned them into something new and necessary in a country with almost 35,000 covid-19 cases and nearly 300 dead.
Four different robot options
Pepper is one of those robots. It is a small white humanoid 1.20 meters tall, 28 kg in weight and with a capacity to operate for about 12 hours, and is probably the most sociable of the small family of four robots recently developed by the company.
This humanoid not only understands and speaks 15 languages, but is also capable of detecting emotions in people and even recognizing their faces, making him perfect conscious and educating people about the virus through conversations and his interactive screen
Sarang explained that pepper can help doctors communicate with their patients remotely without having to be in the same room, helping to limit contact with the infected to prevent infections.
The little man has a rougher-looking brother with broad shoulders that comes equipped with a highly sensitive thermal sensor and optical sensor to determine if a person has a fever, as well as a smart disinfectant dispenser.
The robot is designed to collaborate in the fight against the virus at airports, shopping centers or hospitals.
In those same places, in addition to boats and offices, you can operate the third design of this company, since its function is to use and disinfect rooms when there are no people inside.
Finally, the last of the brothers, Bristabot, makes "contact-free" deliveries and is perfect for delivering basic products such as medicines and food to quarantined patients in hospitals or isolation centers.
