South Korea Develops Epidemic Control Robot

Leave it to South Korea to come up with a technological way to deal with the pandemic. Equipped with multiple sensors, ultraviolent lamps to sterilize objects, and a hand sanitizer dispenser, 5G-connected intelligent sentry robots now patrol the lobby of business buildings, advising people to wear masks and checking body temperatures. When a person with a high body temperature comes in, the robot communicates with its control tower to impose a temporary lockdown as a method of preventing the potential spread of COVID-19. SK Telecom is currently testing the robots in the South Korean branch of Japanese electronics maker Omron. They hope to commercialize the robot later this year and sell it abroad next year.
