China may be recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, but it’s not relaxing just yet. The Beijing Institute of Technology has deployed an unmanned 5G vehicle as a way to continue monitoring citizens and aid in the screening efforts and avoid a recurrence of the outbreak in the country. The autonomous vehicle is said to be able to ID face, check temperatures and deliver packages without human intervention.

There are two ways for authorized persons to monitor the information from the vehicle. The first option is for security personnel to approach a parked vehicle to manually monitor passers-by using the large integrated display at the back. The second is for a security guard to monitor remotely using the live feed from the top-mounted camera.
