Seoul National University Hospital (SNUH) is collaborating with LG Electronics to develop and use robots with the aim of preventing secondary COVID-19 infection at hospitals. For now, the LG CLOi CleanBot will be responsible for disinfecting hospitals while the LG CLOi GuideBot will be helping patients with the registration process.
- LG CLoi CleanBot features indoor-autonomous driving and obstacle-avoidance technology to sweep the floor and passageways, while its H13 high-efficiency particulate air filter simultaneously improves indoor air quality.
- LG CLoi GuideBot asks basic diagnostic questions and measures visitors’ temperature to minimize human-to-human contact.
- While in the early stages of development, the robots are expected to reduce the risk of in-hospital infection by eliminating human-to-human contact while substantially increasing work efficiency.
