The coronavirus has affected the whole world, which has increased the strain on the medical infrastructure of many countries and is the reason for some of the medical infrastructure to collapse. The robotic or automated system can greatly reduce the coronavirus transmission to healthcare workers, and common people by making it possible to screen, monitor, and treat people from a safer distance. The objective of this project is to develop a low-cost bot or automated system for screening individuals before entering into public space. The bot will check if the person has the symptoms of coronavirus before the entrance of the space and based on the result it will allow or disallow him/her from entering the public space. The screening service involves interactive questions that ask regarding common symptoms of coronavirus such as fever, cough, and cold, with the recording of body temperature, heart rate, and blood SPO2 level. It will also differentiate a person is wearing a mask or not wearing a mask. The bot will help the people to be less exposed to the suspected infected person in their spaces. Thus, this type of system process will reduce the chances of virus transmission through human contact.
