World’s First 5G Disinfection Robot Removes Bacteria On The Go

The world's first 5G-based disinfection robot automates anti-infection efforts against COVID-19 in health care facilities.

The telecom operator said it partnered with Yongin Severance Hospital to deploy the robot, which uses a real-time location system using a 5G network to roam around the hospital on its own and monitor people's temperatures and whether they are wearing masks.

SK Telecom said the robot can also detect the location of missing patients through its real-time location system and analysis of patient density within the hospital, reports Yonhap news agency.

The robot is based on SK Telecom's existing guide robot brand Keemi.

Last year, SK Telecom developed an autonomous disinfection robot with Omron Electronics Korea, which was deployed at the mobile carrier's headquarters in central Seoul.
