On March 21, Taiwan’s Central Command Trend Center updated travel restrictions. This has significantly reduced movement, especially between visitors and non-residents within the country. Many countries around the world continue to struggle to stop the COVID-19 pandemic, but many economic activities, including business trips, were forced to stop.

To stay in business without the possibility of personal meetings, many companies rely on remote business solutions to communicate quickly and efficiently. One such solution is a telepresence robot that allows remote employees to physically exist outside of a regular video conference. OhmniLabs specializes in robotics and telepresence technologies, using UpBoard arrays for their devices.

Telepresence Robots use in coronavirus age

Ohmni Telepresence Robots are also ideal for telemedicine and home care, especially when dealing with patients who may have been exposed to an infectious disease. Healthcare professionals can easily operate their telepresence robots using mobile phones, make regular observations, make initial inquiries and share medical records in real time with relevant staff. Telepresence robots allow medical staff to do their jobs without touching the patient and can be easily cleaned and disinfected later.

The AAEON UP IoT Development Board, with thousands of units sold, is one of the most popular boards used by professional manufacturers. UP boards are implemented in many applications such as robots, drones, machine vision, intelligent home, education, transportation and IoT.
