China’s IoT Response Against Coronavirus Outbreak.

China’s IoT Response Against Coronavirus Outbreak.


In early 2020, the Coronavirus outbreak
caught the world off guard. When crisis strikes, the power of technology is
limited, but should not be underestimated. In the fight against the epidemic,
many IoT solution providers are actively taking action, and some smart IoT
solutions have been successfully applied. New technologies such as the Internet
of things, artificial intelligence and 5G have been providing powerful services
for every medical and security personnel on the front line.

GPS + big data,
share epidemic map in real time

The government uses the big data of population migration
collected by GPS services to provide open, transparent and evidence-based
information. “Pneumonia epidemic real-time dynamic” is hot all over
the network, many authoritative media, science popularization services and
other institutions have launched a real-time dynamic view function of the
epidemic situation, which can not only present people with real-time data
changes, but also provide data support for the incidence, cure rate and future

5G+ wireless
Internet of things, help isolate risks

During the outbreak, the Wuhan huoshenshan
hospital was built in 10 days, and countless construction workers and frontline
medical staff worked together to build a medical wall to fight against the
disease. Fighting against the epidemic, smooth communication is the key to
coordinating Wuhan. China’s three major operators worked together in Wuhan
huoshenshan hospital to set up a 5G base station in just three days. All
relevant communication solutions have selected the highest configuration, and
5G high-definition video terminals have been added to meet the needs of remote
medical care anytime, anywhere.

All diagnoses and treatment data can be transferred
paperless, diagnosis results and patient records can be collected and archived
by a digital system, and data can be sent to the cloud. In this way, the risk
of germ transmission caused by paper delivery can be reduced. In addition, all
patients can wear vital signs monitoring equipment, realizing real-time
feedback of body data with the help of 5G or WIFI. All medical devices can also
transfer information to the data center through wireless Internet of things
technology, without laying a lot of network cables, let alone manual collection.
At the same time, the temperature and humidity, oxygen density, personnel flow,
fire conditions and other abnormal conditions in the ward can also be centrally
managed and monitored through the Internet of things technology.

AI speeds up
vaccine development

Li lanjuan, the high-level expert of the national health
and fitness commission, said the virus strain had been successfully isolated
and some vaccine varieties had entered the stage of animal experiments. In the
whole process, a large amount of literature screening, data analysis, repeated
inspection process and other works are very heavy. With the help of AI, vaccine
development improve the screening efficiency, accelerate the progress of the
whole process, shorten the research cycle, and can timely save countless lives.

Telecommuting, working together remotely

In order to control covid-19 infection, reduce staff
gathered together, prevent the spread of the epidemic, and better guarantee the
people’s life and health, many companies have extended the Spring Festival
holiday by about 10 days. Considering enterprise operating losses and other
negative influences, many companies implement a remote online office. With the
help of cloud computing, enterprises improve telecommuting efficiency and reduce
team communication obstacles.

Face recognition +
thermal imaging technology, achieve automatic temperature detection

In railway stations, airports and other areas with a
large number of people, infrared thermal imaging automatic thermometers are
installed. It is combined with biometrics, thermal imaging temperature
measurement, video intelligent analysis, and 5G technologies, realizing high
accuracy, high efficiency, low cost, flexible control, safe and reliable.
infrared thermal imaging automatic thermometers not only deliver an intuitive
and non-contact understanding of the body temperature of each person in the
flow, but also make it possible that abnormalities will automatically alarm,
achieving the goals of effective prevention and timely control, and ensuring
the safe operation of all kinds of places.

5G + drone +
platform, provide integrated services

“Yes auntie, this is the drone speaking to you. You
shouldn’t walk around without wearing a face mask,“ drones are applied in
patrol during coronavirus outbreak.

5G drone platform integrates mobile communication
networks, intelligent video cloud, remote control and other capabilities to
provide integrated drone service, showing its strength in scene-based
applications such as epidemic elimination, epidemic surveillance, distribution
of epidemic prevention materials, and inspection of key epidemic prevention
targets. The drone used in the frontline of epidemic prevention and control,
which not only improves the work efficiency, but also enhances the
effectiveness of anti-epidemic publicity, greatly reducing the risks brought by
direct contact.

Unmanned delivery,
solve medical supply chain problems

On February 6, the intelligent delivery robot of JD
logistics completed the first delivery in Wuhan, successfully delivering
medical and living supplies from Wuhan Renhe station of JD logistics to Wuhan
ninth hospital, which is the designated hospital to receive and treat the new
coronavirus patients, and also the core area of this epidemic. After the
outbreak of the covid-19, engineers from JD logistics division immediately went
to Wuhan to carry out a map survey for intelligent delivery robots, and JD
logistics began to send delivery robots from all over the country to help

Since the end of 2019, the flu has killed more than
12,000 people in the United States, the fires in Australia have been burning
for four consecutive months, and the outbreak of Lassa fever in Nigeria and
Coronavirus in China has caused suffering to the world.

The outbreak exposed many problems and also meant new
technological changes. Cognitive change is sputtering, and the pace of human
progress will never stop. Internet of things technology, AI, 5G and cloud
computing will also be constantly upgraded to promote  the development of intelligent, automated and
information-based society and serve mankind. We believe that with the help of
science and technology, researchers will soon develop a new coronavirus
vaccine. “The Unity of will is an impregnable stronghold”. Although
we can’t restart 2020, we can still start again with warmth in our hearts.
