China Deploys Agricultural Robots And Drones To Fight Virus Outbreak

Summary:
XAG Co., Ltd. was selected by the Chinese government late last month for the deployment of its ground-based robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to spray powerful disinfectants across public places in cities where the Covid-19 outbreak is the worse.  XAG is using a fleet of R80 Agricultural Utility Vehicle robots with 80-liter (21 gallons) sprayers for ground-based disinfectant operations across public places.  The company tweeted several pictures of the R80 in action, spraying disinfectant across a "parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou."  Our farm #robot R80 has stepped forward to join the #fightcoronavirus operation, disinfecting parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou.

XAG Co., Ltd. was selected by the Chinese government late last month for the deployment of its ground-based robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to spray powerful disinfectants across public places in cities where the Covid-19 outbreak is the worse. 

XAG is using a fleet of R80 Agricultural Utility Vehicle robots with 80-liter (21 gallons) sprayers for ground-based disinfectant operations across public places. 

The company tweeted several pictures of the R80 in action, spraying disinfectant across a "parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou." 

Here's a video of the robot spraying disinfectant in an ambulance, which presumably had a virus-infected patient beforehand. The robots are used to spray disinfectants in areas where it's too dangerous for humans, considering the virus is airborne and extremely contagious.

XAG also deployed the "first-ever ground-to-air disinfection solution."

Justin Gong, vice president and co-founder of XAG, said the ground-based drones and UAVs had established a "three dimensional and integrated" disinfection system.

Gong said the robots and UAVs offer a unique advantage to cover a wide area while leaving first responders out of harm's way.   

He said virus containment operations would be mainly across outdoor public places and those communities that have confirmed or suspected cases of the virus.

Gong said operations would also include disinfecting medical and epidemic prevention vehicles, hospitals, and other areas where virus-infected people are being housed.

Last month, we noted how China was using DJI drones with front-mounted speakers, to fly around towns and yell at anyone who wasn't wearing a mask. 

Other reports included Chinese towns deploying agriculture drones with 19 liters (5 gallons) sprayers.
