Smart Tools: 5G Patrol Robots Deployed to Fight Coronavirus

Robots are increasingly common in our daily lives. They are versatile, smart tools that help complete basic, repetitive, and dangerous tasks, promote security service upgrading, and reduce expenses. A leading brand of smart patrol robots, with over 20 years of experience in public safety, working together with Advantech, created a specialized robot for various application scenarios.

Advantech a global leader in Industrial IoT, recently helped develop a patrol robot capable of measuring temperature. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, the Guangzhou Gosuncn Robot Co.,Ltd, a leading provider of smart city IoT products and services, has upgraded its 5G-powered police patrol robot with new capabilities based on Advantech technology to assist first-line police officers in conducting disease prevention inspections.

Because the manual measurement of body temperature exposes public safety personnel to potential health risks, these robots are equipped with 5 high-resolution cameras and infrared thermometers capable of scanning the temperature of 10 people simultaneously within a radius of 5 meters. If a high temperature or the absence of a mask is detected, the robots send an alert to the relevant authorities. All data can be transmitted to a centralized control center for real-time situational response and decision making. Moreover, although these smart tools robots are self-driving machines, they can also be controlled remotely, thereby saving manpower by reducing patrolling responsibilities and preventing cross-infection. It’s no surprise then that these next-generation 5G patrol robots have already been spotted at airports and shopping malls in the cities of Guangzhou, Shanghai, Xi’an, and Guiyang.
