Scientific technology is making its own contributions to the battle against COVID-19. Given its innovative advantages, Hefei City, the capital of east China's Anhui Province uses scientific and technological tools to help prevent and control the epidemic.
The launch of new equipment such as a health code verification system and epidemic prevention robots not only reduces the burden on front-line workers but also improves effectiveness in the prevention of the disease.
A set of intelligent access control systems is used at a construction site entrance in Hefei, integrating facial recognition, intelligent temperature measurement, identity authentication, health code and nucleic acid test report verification.
People can either show their faces or ID cards when passing through, and the system will complete the verification of all the information.
The intelligent temperature measuring and ground cleaning and disinfecting robot have been in service for COVID-19 prevention and control. It not only has infrared thermometers to measure temperature in distance but also has cognitive and navigation capabilities to carry out fixed-point and multi-track mobile disinfection.
Technologies such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, big data, and cloud computing have been widely used in the prevention of the Omicron variant and have played an essential role in reducing face-to-face contact and cutting the chain of transmission.
