Fever is one of the main symptoms of the coronavirus therefore; temperature measuring body patches and wearable help to detect people who carry risk. The wearable will give an alert about the rise in temperature and other changes in the body. Footfall sensors and thermal scanners in patches would also help organizations to gather information real-time information about coronavirus prospects. It will help in escorting them to the testing before it gets transmitted.

Contact-less Devices to Avoid Physical Contact

Self Driven Robots for Cleaning

Some enterprises have included self-driven robots to clean floors and sanitize space. These robots disinfect the surfaces with the help of high-intensity ultraviolet light. It will destroy the virus by tearing apart their DNA. Robots made of the internet of things will be connected to applications and can be controlled through them.
