Empower hospitals with AI technology
As one of the largest temporary hospitals in Shanghai, the Lingang Temporary Hospital is running at full capacity, which has a high demand for contactless delivery of goods and efficient transfer of medical staff. With SenseTime’s experience of various autonomous driving R&D work in the Lingang New Area since 2018, the project teams of SenseAuto autonomous driving shuttle bus and autonomous driving taxi worked relentlessly to complete the testing of a 12km autonomous driving route within one day. These intelligent connected vehicles with robust systems will be officially put into use to help the safe and efficient transportation of anti-epidemic materials and medical staff.
Under the remote working arrangements, SenseTime is making further use of its expertise in smart health to support hospitals. The company quicky launched a medical imaging diagnosis platform, which supported sharing of medical information across different hospitals with the help of medical information and radiology departments. The platform has been adopted by 3A hospitals in Shanghai, allowing doctors to diagnose and produce reports remotely.
