College of Lagos, UNILAG has acquired – first of its variety in Nigerian and sub saharan Africa – robots to assist in accumulating knowledge across the faculty.
The robots which had been donated by Platform Capital, a worldwide funding agency might be used for temperature and blood strain checks and provision of different knowledge.
Prof Toyin Ogundipe, the vice chancellor of the College Reveals the robots might be positioned in designated areas just like the College Library, The Senate Constructing, The College Enterprise Faculty ETC.
On the inauguration of the robots on the establishment’s library, the Vice Chancellor mentioned that the robots would enhance the establishment’s supply strains.
”Now we have been speaking about Enhancing our supply strains. These robots are actually going so as to add worth in that regard, within the sense that synthetic intelligence would now be delivered to bear.
”They’re going to load it with the books we’ve got within the library, additionally it is going to take the temperature of the individuals coming into the library. It would additionally give us the information of individuals coming to the library on a regular basis, have a look at the height time that they arrive in, and the height hour, they depart.
”It will serve in so some ways. Now we have one which might be positioned on the Senate Constructing that can equally take temperature. If you wish to examine your blood strain, it is going to help you to do this. In case you are on the lookout for any physique at that very same Senate constructing, when you point out the identify of such an individual, it is going to let you know the variety of the room the place the particular person is.
”One other one might be deployed to our unilag Enterprise Faculty. What we’re taking a look at, is to ensure that we enhance on our supply strains,” he mentioned.
Ogundipe mentioned that at this important interval of worldwide well being problem, the companies of the robots could be an enormous contribution towards security.
”For example, if one’s temperature is simply too excessive, it is going to elevate an alarm regarding that, and with that improvement, the safety personnel know that such an individual must be attended to.
”It would cut back contact stage with our safety personnel and others round.“Now we have different applied sciences to be put in place at this era. These upcoming applied sciences will examine one’s blood strain too in addition to oxygen stage.He added that a number of the applied sciences would detect metals.
”That’s what our analysis groups are at the moment engaged on. Now we have carried out ventilator and are actually working into the prototype, and a few corporations are already exhibiting curiosity to fabricate it,” Ogundipe mentioned.
