ASME Robotics Public Policy Task Force Releases White Paper on Robotics and COVID-19
The white paper shares how the COVID-19 pandemic has been a “call to action” for how the world can be better prepared to respond to and mitigate future global health disasters. In the paper, the ASME RPPTF shares how the United States can adapt and develop responsive robotics technologies that will allow the U.S. to be agile enough to respond to future crises. Specifically, the paper dives into five key examples of how the U.S. can continue to combat COVID-19 today, while also preparing itself for a more secure future. The five examples of where investments in robotics technologies can have the biggest impact include:
- Deep cleaning
- Rapid manufacturing
