Robots detect fever and determine if people are wearing face masks properly have been rolled out in Belgium as a first line of control in hospitals and shops, Reuters reported.
People arriving at the University Hospital Antwerp from Tuesday will answer questions online or at an interactive kiosk. The robot will scan a QR code, review their answers, check their temperature and determine if they are wearing a mask correctly. The robots can speak over 53 languages.
The robots, typically costing 30,000 euros had also been sold to clinics in France, the Netherlands, the United States and Rwanda, and are also in some Belgian computer stores.
