(Xinhua/Ding Shan)Special: Battle Against Novel CoronavirusChinese researchers have developed a robotic sprayer that can help reduce the transmission of the novel coronavirus in heavily populated urban areas.
The new air-blast machine, a vehicle fitted with caterpillar tracks, was used for agricultural spraying in the past. Researchers from Soochow University in east Chinas Jiangsu Province renovated its spraying system, making it more suitable for disinfectant liquid cleaners.
“We have experimented with the disinfectant liquid spraying, which proved that the chlorine content in the air was increased and the possibility of aerosol transmission was reduced,” said Geng Changxing, a member of the research team.
The robotic sprayer can be remotely operated. The range of its spray devices can reach 30 meters.
According to researchers, the robot can walk up to 7 km per hour, killing the virus in an area of more than 40,000 square meters. It is narrow enough to maneuver into residential communities, bus stations, construction sites and underground parking garages.
The sprayer has already worked in some urban areas in the city of Suzhou. It will be used in more local schools and communities, the researchers said.MorePhotoFirst 28 patients with NCP discharged from Wuchang Fang Cang makeshift hospitalDrones used in coronavirus prevention in ShenzhenBaby girl infected with novel coronavirus cured in HaikouHigh-speed train staff stay on posts amid outbreakChinas 36th Antarctic expedition team visits Commander Ferraz Antarctic Station3D printed medical goggles put into useMore patients received in Leishenshan HospitalCitizen supplies free food for workers fighting novel coronavirus in NanchangChina carefully returns to work amid anti-epidemic battleSolar probe embarks on unprecedented mission to map suns polar regionsIn pics: temporary hospital in WuhanAuto company resumes negative pressure ambulance production for fight against novel coronavirusCompany accelerates production of nucleic acid extraction kits for sampling testing in ChengduIsrael Diamond Exchange opens in Ramat GanXi inspects novel coronavirus prevention, control work in BeijingXiaogan city sets up 24-hour hotline platform for citizens during outbreakPic story: post-95s male nurse rescues patients on frontline of fighting epidemic Beijings subways thin on first workdayPeople return to work after extended break in GuangzhouWith love and care, people battle conoravirus in China Hunan student honors health workers, including his father, with artworksWuhan strengthens disinfection measures to contain virus spread(Helicopter loaded with supplies lifts off on relief missionPatients taken care of at Leishenshan HospitalChinese Lunar New Year parade held in Manhattans ChinatownMotors company rushes to produce negative pressure ambulances for fight against epidemicAmbulance driver in battle against coronavirus in Hangzhou Cured patients discharged from hospital in Shenyang, NE Chinas LiaoningCoronavirus: All of quarantined cruise crew test negativeNYC Lunar New Year parade showcases support for ChinaChinas mask production recovering as work resumption quickensJapans Hanyu wins mens singles at Four ContinentsChina outplays South Korea 100-60 for third victory at Olympic qualifierWoodworking show held in TorontoStars shine on red carpet during Oscars arrivalsPsychologists unite to help front-line medical workersMost popular in 24h$(function () {$.ajax({type: “get”,dataType: “json”,url: “/part/6/ecns_rank24h.json”,success: function (status) {var str = “”;$.each(status,function(index,obj){obj.title = obj.title.replace(/'/g, ');str +=+obj[“title”]+;});$(“#rank24″).html(str);},error:function(status){}});});MoreTop newsHK researchers develop system to identify 40 infectious respiratory pathogens in 1 hour Chinese spokesperson refutes U.S. accusation of cyber theft of trade secrets WHO launches global research forum against novel coronavirus MIIT steps up push to help companies resume work U.S. non-profit donates 1.8 mln face masks to help China combat coronavirus outbreakMoreVideoPatrol robot helps fight novel coronavirusDelivery robots to reduce risk of 2019-nCoV infection in hard-hit WuhanLINEMedia partners:Peoples Daily Online|Xinhuanet|China.org.cn|ChinaDaily.com.cn|CGTN|Globaltimes.cn|Chinaplus.cri.cn|Shine.cn|JSCHINA|
