Techstination feature for Friday, February 5, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Misty Robotics has developed a new skill for its Misty II robot….turning it into a temperature screening Assistant.   The robotics company ..a spin out of Sphero…has tested the skill with a variety of health institutions and other organizations.   Company Head Tim Enwall..

“Misty asks the Covid 19 screening questions…have you had these symptoms…have you been around something or caring for somebody with these symptoms..and then she…with a thermal camera in her visor..takes somebody’s temperature and if it’s elevated will let somebody in the facility know..hey..you need to come check this person further.”

Misty is a robotics platform…open source..that allows for the creation of a wide range of solutions.   Find more at www.mistyrobotics.com.
