The COVID-19 pandemic has threatened the world’s population. And cutting-edge robots have garnered a lot of attention as a solution that can overcome the crisis. They have played a significant role in preventing the infection with the virus as well as in regions that are most at risk in the COVID-19 pandemic. Aside from preventing secondary infection at the medical field, the freight robot can lessen the work load of medical staffs. The robot mainly moves medical waste, which has a high risk of infection, to a specific place. Autonomous driving and target-following technologies have been applied to the freight robot. Therefore, a lot of robots can be connected just like a train. And a robot can follow another robot ahead without the lines for connection. The recently introduced robot for the prevention of the virus has helped the citizens have self-detection of fever. After the self-screening for detection of heat, the location information of the selected clinics is provided to the suspected infectees. What is more, they can have a direct phone connection with a staff who is in charge of preventive measures. And quick responses can be provided in case of confirmed cases. Moreover, there is a robot that can move around the specified areas and spray the disinfectant. And it is expected to make a great contribution to the prevention of COVID-19 spread. We introduce the domestically developed robots which have played significant roles for the prevention of COVID-19 infection.

Along with the spread of social distancing measures because of the continuing COVID-19 outbreak, the economic activities of the citizens have decreased. And it has hurt the local economy. A lot of local governments have sought various ways to stabilize the financial status of small business owners. After making orders and payments through a mobile application, a delivery person is assigned within two hours and the products are directly delivered from a traditional market to a consumer. The service has gained a lot of popularity among consumers, so other local governments have been considering the introduction of the service as well. Moreover, a campaign that boosts the consumption of agricultural products has been promoted in a local district every week. The Suwon city has promoted the campaign by preparing the place, goods and manpower. The organization from the local foundation provides the local agricultural products instead of farmers. After the government raised its COVID-19 alert level to the highest, severe level, Dobong-gu district has organized a special volunteer group to prevent the spread of the virus. The group consists of local residents in Dobong-gu district. 20 volunteers have gathered from each local community center and about 250 volunteer workers from 14 districts have carried out various activities to prevent the infection with the virus. We explore the continuing efforts of the citizens and local governments which are expected to revitalize the local economy and tackle the COVID-19 crisis.

A lot of people have shown great interest in healthcare along with the aggravated COVID-19 pandemic. Improving the immune system by having moderate exercises is the most significant element. Smart exercise equipment has continuously evolved by collaborating with cutting-edge technologies including VR, AR and mobile application. An IoT sensor has recently been developed. It can be attached to the exercise equipment and used as a VR exercising tool via bluetooth connection. Also, it performs complex signal processing. What is more, people can enjoy exercises including cycling, running and sailing more realistically in a virtual world. An institute located in Yongsan-gu district has introduced a system that applied AR technology. It can help users have exercise through various games. As it provides customized games according to different conditions of users, it can increase the workout capabilities of the patients who need rehabilitation and enhance the abilities of patients with dementia and Parkinson's disease to understand and act. Smart exercise equipment has been developed as a tool for medical treatment, aside from a simple device that helps exercise. For the elderly or patients with mobility difficulties, a wearable device for the recovery of muscles has been developed. It can recover and strengthen muscles by applying electrical stimulation. When attaching the device to a body part like knees, it can analyze the information on the user’s musculoskeletal system. And customized electric stimulation is applied to the neuromuscle. We look into smart exercise equipment which has provided a digital solution by collaborating with cutting-edge ICT skills and medicine.
