FREMONT, Calif., June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Following a COVID-19 outbreak in China’s most populous province, Guangdong, DeepRoute.ai is currently transporting approximately 14,000 COVID-19 test samples daily to local hospitals in Shenzhen for testing by its advanced self-driving Technology. With sporadic cases in the city, measures to restrict traffic in the province have increased. Using DeepRoute.ai’s self-driving technology, first responders can focus on other important tasks.
“We are honored to be able to transport test samples with our self-driving vehicles. This project shows the value of self-driving technology in emergency situations, efficiently transporting test samples and freeing critical workers to help citizens, ”said Xuan Liu, partner and vice president of DeepRoute.ai. “We look forward to launching a robo-taxi service in Shenzhen in the near future to bring citizens to and from multiple vaccination sites.”
DeepRoute vehicles are on standby 24 hours a day, delivering samples as often as necessary for quick results with little human interaction. About 20 million doses of vaccine have been administered in Shenzhen, and authorities have maintained, for the most part, tighter border restrictions to further contain the spread of the virus.
