The Beijing Institute of Technology deployed a new unmanned delivery vehicle on the Zhongguancun campus this week.
This 5G-equipped vehicle was jointly developed by Beijing Institute of Technology and Cool High Technology.
It can perform temperature measurement and screening for people entering the campus, and can recognize facial information even when there is a mask on the face, according to Xinhua News Agency.
The unmanned delivery vehicle can deliver materials independently and realize contactless delivery.
In the basic delivery mode, the unmanned delivery vehicle can transport packages from the loading location to the destination. After arriving at the destination, the camera installed on the top of the unmanned delivery vehicle will rotate to perform face recognition on the recipient. After the recognition is successful, the recipient can open any storage door to take out the package.
In addition, the camera can also measure the temperature of the recipient through thermal scanning.
There is a large integrated display at the rear of the unmanned delivery vehicle. After parking, the security guard can remotely measure the human face and body temperature.
It uses a 5G cellular connection to allow security guards to see what the "unmanned vehicle" "sees" in real time.
This 5G unmanned delivery vehicle is part of the "KuGaea · Kun" series developed by Cool High Technology. Currently, Cool High Technology has been tested on more than 300 miles of unmanned vehicle test roads in Beijing. The self-driving version has passed Apollo's independent Certification of open automotive platforms.
The unmanned delivery vehicle of Beijing Institute of Technology is not the first time in China that new technologies have been used for the screening and safety of new coronaviruses.
In early March, Meituan's unmanned vehicles were successively put into use in Beijing's Shunyi and Haidian, and unmanned delivery orders accounted for more than 50% of some community orders.
