Kochi, March 18, 2020:  An unconventional battle has been waged by the Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) against the spread of the novel coronavirus by using two robots.

Of the pair of computer-programmed machines developed by Asimov Robotics which is a startup incubated at KSUM in Kochi, one distributes masks, sanitiser and napkins in a bid to check Covid-19 while the other screens details about the World Health Organisations campaign to contain the disease, a press release said, news agency PTI reports.

Asimov CEO Jayakrishnan T said a general public apathy towards preventive measures against the novel coronavirus has prompted the solutions-provider company to go for such a drive.

The use of robots in the campaign has invited public attention, also considering the propensity of the novel coronavirus to spread though human contact.

KSUM Chief Executive Officer Saji Gopinath said the institution was mulling over installing such robots in public places such as airports.

All startups being incubated at KSUM too were being given health guidelines in the context of coronavirus, he added.

The 2006-founded KSUM is a nodal agency of the Kerala government for entrepreneurship development and incubation activities in the state.
