Voters who reached Thrikkakara community hall to cast their vote were surprised to see a robot outside the polling station. The district authority had arranged the robot here to check the temperature of the voters and serve sanitizer to all. The robot named Sayabot completes the temperature examination within one minute.
At first, the Sayabot will ask the voters to focus on its left hand. Following this, the robot will raise its hand and check the temperature of the voter through the thermal scanner installed on its hand. Later, it will dispense sanitizer to the voter. After this procedure, the robot will announce that the screening of the voter is completed and welcome the voter to the booth. Also, if voters arrive at the booth without wearing the mask properly, the robot will alert them to wear it properly. Directions on social distancing also will be issued.
