In order to avoid direct contact between doctors and patients, Boston Dynamics decided to let the spot quadruped robot play a more important role as an intermediary in medical institutions. < / P > < p > for doctors, this enables them to diagnose and communicate with patients more safely. Now researchers at MIT and Boston’s Brigham women’s hospital have published a paper on the results of the spring test. < / P > < p > at the same time, they are planning to provide a trial of dealing with spot quadruped robots to patients who have been diagnosed with covid-19. Henwei Hunag, one of the main authors of the study, said in a press release that he hoped to save health care from dangerous work through automation and robotics. < / P > < p > the spot robot, equipped with four cameras (including infrared + three monochromatic light cameras that can filter different wavelengths), can check the physical signs of patients. < / P > < p > for example, infrared cameras can measure skin temperature rise and respiratory rate, while three tricolor cameras can measure blood oxygen saturation (the subtle color change that occurs when hemoglobin in blood cells combines with oxygen and flows through blood vessels). In response to the covid-19 crisis, henwei Huang said that instead of developing new technologies, they applied existing solutions to spot robots. However, looking forward to the future, robots can surely be used in more fields. For example, a spot is deployed in the ward so that doctors can monitor and inspect patients remotely. Global Tech
