As part of its effort to contain the spread of Covid-19, China is using 5G patrol robots developed by Guangzhou Gosuncn Robot Co.,Ltd using Advantech technology to monitor mask wearing and body temperatures in public places.

Following the outbreak of Covid-19, provider of smart city IoT products and services Guangzhou Gosuncn Robot Co. upgraded its 5G-powered police patrol robot with new capabilities 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 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.

Gosuncn's 5G patrol robots integrate IoT, AI, cloud computing, and big data technologies to conduct environmental sensing, dynamic decision-making, autonomous motion control, as well as behavioral sensing and interaction.

To enable such advanced computing, 5G patrol robots are powered by a high-performance industrial edge computer (MIC-770) from Advantech, equipped with an 8th gen Intel Core i processor and GPU iModule (MIC-75G20) aimed at IoT applications. The industrial-grade edge computer combined with MIC-75G20 GPU iModule provide a high-performance system for AI training and inference. It's ruggedized chassis and cast aluminum heatsink protect against vibration and shock, the passive thermal solution ensures silent operation.
