CovAssist is an autonomous multi-robot system used for coordinated monitoring in highly frequented environments such as supermarkets or airports. Each robot is equipped with an infrared camera and RGB-D camera for monitoring body temperature, recognizing people, faces and their body parts. Moreover, it is equipped with two anthropomorphic arms which enable complex manipulation tasks such as those required for nasopharyngeal swabs.
