Robots Under COVID-19 Pandemic: A Comprehensive Survey
Y. Shen et al., “Robots Under COVID-19 Pandemic: A Comprehensive Survey,” in IEEE Access, vol. 9, pp. 1590-1615, 2021, doi: 10.1109/ACCESS.2020.3045792.

UBTECH Robotics may not be a household name – yet – however, the teams that make up the company around the globe are making significant contributions to the world of robotics and AI every day. In North America, the UBTECH Research and Development office is located in Pasadena, CA and is surrounded by fellow brilliant minds from companies like JPL, Cal Tech, and many more that help change the world for the better. Over the past year the team has settled in the new Pasadena location, the team at the R&D office has also been studying the effects of usage of robotics during the COVID-19 pandemic and published the official paper in December of 2020.

“Robots Under Covid-19 Pandemic: A Comprehensive Survey” provides a high-level review on the current progress of robotic systems development in tackling the challenges brought by COVID-19 pandemic. The review is broken down into five categories covering robotics: robotics for COVID-19 detection and screening, UV based disinfection (note: UBTECH recently announced their new UV-C robotic line, ADIBOT to the world at CES 2021), Robotics used in healthcare including surgical robotics down to telehealth advancements, Logistical and Operational robotics in warehouses and manufacturing fields (note: UBTECH also recently announced a new automated robotics line specializing in warehouse robotics at CES 2021), and lastly a general round up of robotics that don’t belong to one succinct category.

The paper, spearheaded by Yang Shen NA R&D research engineer, showcases the culmination of how robotics and AI have been an integral part of providing aid and assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic and how robotics shape our everyday lives. This is significant to our UBTECH Education products where our robotics and curriculum are built around instructing students to identify how robotics, AI, and STEM learning integrate with our daily lives, such as the food we eat, the doctors we speak to, the packages we receive and much more.

UBTECH Education is rare in the idea that our company does not only bring quality STEM products to students, but we are also a manufacturing robotics and AI company that is passionate about bringing our learnings to the next generation. This paper in IEEE may just inspire the next mechanical engineer, software developer, or ID designer to create something new that inspires humanity – and we can’t wait.
