At Antwerp University Hospital, you won’t be greeted by front desk receptionists. Instead, a robot called CRUZR is screening medical staff, patients and visitors. It automatically detects the body temperature of those coming in and whether they have masks on. Those with fever or aren’t properly wearing masks will be notified immediately. The robot is supplied by Belgian company Zorabots.
