The epidemic of New Coronavirus pneumonia also threatens the life and health of the whole nation. Now the whole country is still in a state of “strict defense against death”. Everyone is trying to reduce the possibility of contact with the outside world. It also brings many difficulties to front-line workers in areas with huge flow, such as railway stations, high-speed railway stations, airports and hospitals, including heavy workload and risk of infection.

In this case, mobile propaganda vehicles, thermometers and disinfection UAVs have brought a lot of convenience to epidemic prevention.

The robot that used to patrol the park has become a mobile thermometer in crowded squares, transportation hubs and hospital halls. The original alarm function has also become a radio station for epidemic prevention and publicity. The plant protection UAV, which has always been the helper of farmers, has also become a mobile horn for the village head to shout.

The robot moves from indoor to outdoor, expanding the service functions originally in relatively closed spaces, such as restaurants, buildings and operating rooms, to more open outdoor venues.

Today, we will focus on these outdoor epidemic prevention robots to see what role robots play in outdoor epidemic prevention, and how these robots can be transformed to fight the epidemic in the field of security and agriculture.

1、 Robots go from heaven to earth to participate in epidemic prevention in the whole city and township

Wearing masks and taking temperature has become a must for many people every day. In the past month, temperature measuring personnel have taken temperature measurement for passers-by with temperature measuring guns at the door of almost every community, office building and intersection all over the country, and supervised everyone to wear masks.

Semi enclosed communities and buildings are tested so strictly, not to mention railway stations, high-speed railway stations, airports, hospital halls and other public places with dense flow of people.

The workload of monitoring temperature measurement by security personnel is huge. During the epidemic prevention and control period, we saw many incidents of weak protection awareness and even physical conflict with temperature measurement personnel.

1.5g patrol temperature measuring robot

Recently, a patrol temperature measuring robot appeared in large pedestrian flow areas such as airports, squares and hospitals to measure the temperature of pedestrians without contact and supervise whether pedestrians wear masks.

Its predecessor is Gao Xinxing’s 5g patrol robot. In this epidemic, it upgraded the temperature measurement and monitoring system and became a 5g patrol temperature measurement robot.

Berlin, general manager of gaoxinxing robot company, told us that many functions of 5g patrol temperature measurement robot are opposite to the previous patrol alarm function.

For example, it is necessary to identify whether pedestrians wear masks during epidemic prevention and control. This function is opposite to the face recognition function during patrol. Berlin said: “in face recognition, the robot will screen out the mask as a foreign object in face recognition, and now monitoring the wearing of the mask requires algorithm upgrading to convert the function back.”

In addition, the infrared temperature measurement function is also improved after the system debugging of the anti fireworks function of the previous patrol robot. 5g patrol robot has changed from security function to screening and monitoring during epidemic prevention and control.

According to Berlin, Gao Xinxing’s 5g patrol temperature measurement robot uses five high-definition cameras up, down, left and right, which can be monitored 24 hours without dead corners through mobile 5g network panorama. At the same time, all kinds of monitoring data such as infrared thermal imaging are transmitted to the background in real time. If any abnormality is found, the background monitoring personnel can talk back in real time and remotely to control the on-site situation.

Wanda Plaza in Nansha, Guangzhou is a densely populated area in Nansha District. Before 5g temperature measurement patrol car took the post, a total of 5 security guards patrolled with temperature measurement guns to measure the temperature of pedestrians. After Gao Xinxing’s 5g temperature measurement patrol robot went online, Nansha Wanda Plaza deployed two robots overnight to carry out 24-hour uninterrupted patrol in the Plaza. After the robot took office, the number of patrol security guards was reduced from 5 to 1, and the screening efficiency was greatly improved. It can not only measure temperature without contact, but also measure temperature for multiple people at the same time.

Using 5g patrol temperature measuring robot has two obvious advantages. Firstly, the robot can measure the infrared temperature within 5 meters from the crowd. The temperature of 10 people can be measured at one time with an error of 0.5 ° C, which can reduce the possibility of cross infection between temperature measuring personnel and pedestrians.

Secondly, at present, this kind of patrol temperature measurement robot is more responsible for the task of secondary screening in airports and other areas. It can catch “fish out of the net” in a large number of people. The dual voice system can also take into account the functions of broadcasting and real-time call.

In addition to temperature measurement and patrol supervision, 5g patrol temperature measurement robot can also act as a mobile radio horn to broadcast epidemic prevention precautions in a 24-hour cycle.

2. UAV killing and epidemic prevention

Agricultural UAVs also have advantages in epidemic prevention and elimination. Jifei’s “spring thunder action” invested 5 million yuan to establish a special fund for epidemic prevention and elimination.

Farmers all over the country have joined the UAV epidemic prevention and killing activities and voluntarily supported local government departments to carry out epidemic prevention. Gao Jinghuai, Secretary of nanzhangli Party branch of Huaishu Town, Jinzhou, Hebei Province, also saw more possibilities of UAV operation in this epidemic prevention work.

Gao Jinghuai said excitedly when reporting the killing of the village: “this UAV spraying and disinfection has greatly saved human and material resources, and the whole village has been sprayed in less than half a day. The advanced unmanned technology such as agricultural UAV has been put into the epidemic prevention and control, and I believe the country will win the war of” epidemic “soon!”

Now many rural areas have closed villages, and UAV spraying disinfectant has solved the problem of scarcity of human and material resources in rural areas.

Plant protection UAVs loaded with disinfectants in Dajiang also fly over rural areas all over the country to kill the streets and villages. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, pilots from all parts of Xinjiang agriculture have volunteered to use plant protection UAVs to support all parts to fight the epidemic.

3. UAV patrol call

During the epidemic prevention and control period, we saw many “hard core” village heads supervise villagers to wear masks and report to people entering the village from other places.

There are UAVs patrolling over many rural areas to supervise whether any personnel have unsafe behavior. People who do not wear masks are likely to be “shouting in the air” and wear masks to go home for isolation.

The appearance rate of Dajiang patrol call UAV in these scenes is very high. With 30x optical zoom camera, 24 megapixel HD camera, infrared thermal imaging camera, etc., the patrol call UAV supports 8km ultra-high definition image transmission, which can timely find population concentration points from a high-altitude perspective and view details such as wearing masks through enlarged images.

In order to adapt to the patrol shouting task, the UAV is also loaded with a third-party shouting device, which can shout in real time and disperse the crowd remotely. It can also play recordings to publicize the epidemic situation and epidemic prevention knowledge.

“Please pay attention to the people below. Please wear masks! Don’t get together during epidemic prevention and control!” This sentence floating over Dinghu District, Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province was shouted by villagers to the crowd through COBIT Airlines patrol drones.

The relevant person in charge of CorBit said: “aerial yelling is only a simple function of UAV anti epidemic. Now what we do is to make UAVs do more complex anti epidemic work. At present, our UAV has realized large-area rapid temperature measurement, and we will invest more energy in this work.”

It is understood that this scheme specifically includes large-scale HD patrol through UAVs to automatically identify the crowd gathering in the area. After flying over the crowd, switch to the infrared temperature measurement system to screen the crowd. After there is no problem in the screening, drive the crowd away with the remote shouting system and disinfect the area with suspected cases.

4. Ground killing unmanned vehicle

In addition to the killing drone, the automatic tool for spraying disinfectants in a large area, there is also a ground killing drone that cooperates with the UAV to carry out open space and three-dimensional disinfection of the epidemic situation.

Jifei’s “spring thunder operation” is equipped with agricultural unmanned vehicles for killing UAVs. In fact, the predecessor of this ground killing unmanned vehicle is an agricultural machinery product that has just been available for two months. At this special moment, it turned into a disinfection unmanned vehicle and went to the streets and villages.

The ground killing automatic vehicle can carry 80 liters of disinfectant at a time. Its airflow sprayer can reach 12 meters in width, and it can kill 64800 square meters per hour.

The agricultural machinery originally used for spraying medicine and sowing in farmland and fruit forests “put on armor” and rushed to the front line in this epidemic, truly practicing the concept of “saving the country through science and technology”.

2、 What can robots do in the face of a major epidemic

The outbreak of New Coronavirus pneumonia has brought great challenges to China’s medical technology. Under the shortage of manpower, robots have been used in various industries.

In hospitals, remote control robots can carry out long-distance video communication and monitor patients. Distribution robots can deliver medical supplies and meals for patients and medical staff. The disinfection robot can carry out comprehensive disinfection in the hospital operating room.

The popularity of 5g has also brought new possibilities to combat the epidemic. Relying on 5g telemedicine robot, it can not only carry out video diagnosis for patients, but also carry out surgery remotely.

Intelligence has also recently reported the use of robots in the US for the first case of New Coronavirus pneumonia.

At that time, the robots assisting doctors in treatment were equipped with cameras, microphones, stethoscopes and other equipment, and the doctors were responsible for operating the robots outside the isolation window.

In the face of the epidemic, what is fragile is life, and what is precious is life. Robot assisted therapy and protection is an effective way to reduce infection.

It is not the first time for robots to participate in treatment and epidemic prevention in the epidemic. When SARS broke out in 2003, the Institute of automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences developed an assistant robot. The robot is mainly used for delivering food and medicine in the ward, transporting medical equipment and treating garbage in the ward. It can transport items weighing up to 30 kg at a time.

The robots used in the fight against SARS are also intelligent to help medical staff do some simple transportation work. It is also bulky, about 50 cm high. It is equipped with basic accessories such as camera and infrared sensor. It walks on three wheels at the bottom.

In the outbreak of New Coronavirus pneumonia, all kinds of robot assistants have also been developed, with the help of health care workers and epidemic prevention personnel to complete monitoring, disinfection and medical treatment.

5g temperature measurement patrol robot can measure the temperature of 10 pedestrians at the same time. If the temperature is higher than 37.3 degrees, it will immediately sound the alarm and notify the backstage staff. If it is detected that the personnel do not wear masks, they will immediately go to disperse the crowd and urge them to wear masks and leave the public place quickly.

Killing UAV, patrol shouting UAV and ground killing UAV are used to disinfect and disperse people in a large area. The combination of UAV and UAV greatly improves the disinfection efficiency, and UAV shouting also brings great convenience to the anti aggregation work.

Although robots can not completely replace doctors, robots can be used as tools to replace people to complete some high-risk work.

3、 The epidemic brings robot application inflection point?

New Coronavirus pneumonia continues to spread. Before we can develop a specific drug, what we can do is reduce the possibility of infection.

Different levels of blockade have been implemented throughout the country. Cities and communities have been closed in areas with serious epidemic situation, and all unnecessary travel is prohibited.

In the case of extremely inconvenient travel, robots with AI ability began to become human intelligent assistants. Takeout and express delivery can be delivered to the door of the recipient’s house with detoxified robots after delivery to the community. These robots have the functions of route planning, taking elevators and voice interaction.

During isolation, human communication should be minimized. Each face-to-face contact may increase the risk of cross infection. At this time, the contactless service ability of the robot also reflects its advantages.

Intelligent voice robot, medical disinfection robot, remote surgery robot, isolation and distribution robot and patrol temperature measurement robot have all played different roles in epidemic prevention and control.

The application scope of robots is further expanded due to the impact of the epidemic, involving all aspects of work and life. Maybe after the epidemic, these temporary “post” robots will return to their original posts, and maybe these robots will continue to stay in these jobs.

Conclusion: new technologies protect life and help fight the epidemic

The epidemic in Wuhan has not been completely curbed, and the number of cases of pneumonia caused by New Coronavirus has been increasing. Despite the urgent dispatch of doctors and nurses in various provinces, medical staff are still working at full capacity.

The application of robot can relieve the pressure of front-line personnel to a certain extent. Temperature measuring robots can keep the virus behind uninfected people. Disinfection robots can protect medical staff from cross infection.

When the epidemic breaks out, if robots can replace human work and reduce the infection of medical staff, it is an ideal application of science and technology.

Robots are used more and more in epidemic prevention. The development of medical technology, the progress of science and technology and the emergence of artificial intelligence will help us tide over the difficulties.
