The friendly-looking robot spent some time in New York, in February it was installed in Times Square to help provide information about the new virus. Now he is no longer there, however, judging by map on the project websiteIn the United States there are dozens of other similar machines.

In particular, 3 of them are installed in Washington (District of Columbia), several in California, Philadelphia and other states.

How the robot works

Passers-by should fill out a short questionnaire on an iPad-like touch screen attached to the robot’s chest, and they can also talk to the machine.

The robot does not actually detect the virus. He asks if the person has common symptoms of COVID-19, such as a fever, and the person must press “yes” or “no” on the touch screen, after which he receives a message that he is not sick, advice to see a doctor or information about coronavirus.

«Эта штука очень умная. Она действительно очень умная», – сказала Тара Хили, которая в феврале приезжала в Нью-Йорк из Лондона и пообщалась с роботом.


Promobot was created by a startup from Philadelphia who creates robots for business. His team consists entirely of Russian-speaking immigrants in the United States.

«Мы разработали специальное программное обеспечение для выявления симптомов коронавируса», – сказал директор компании по развитию бизнеса Олег Киворкуцев.

«Мы понимаем, как важна эта проблема, как люди нервничают, люди боятся этого. Но если они поймут несколько простых вещей, например, какие симптомы имеет коронавирус, что они должны сделать, чтобы предотвратить это, все будет хорошо, и все будут счастливы», – сказал Киворкуцев.

Также команда россиян создала робота, который может измерять температуру – Promobot Thermocontrol – его можно устанавливать в офисах и общественных местах. Он может измерить температуру за 5 секунд.

Measurements are sent to the database, including the face of the user and his full name (if it is present in the database). In case the temperature is not normal, the input can be limited by using a remote access system, writes Promo-bot.
