Helpers you can rely on in a crisis
Dependable, robust and indestructible – service robots have been providing back-up to medical staff during the COVID-19 crisis. Unlike humans they don't catch the virus or get tired. This is a big help when it comes to containing the spread of the infection.
The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a real boom in service robots. There are currently four types in use. Protection robots screen areas off, take people's temperature and remind them to wear a mask. Delivery robots transport food, laboratory samples and medicines. Care robots look after infectious people who could easily spread the virus. And lastly, cleaning robots help disinfect rooms and surfaces and prevent infection.
