] A Chinese company that makes laser navigation tools for home robots has developed as bug-killing robot.The company essentially took their 2D LIDAR technology, commonly seen on home cleaning robots, integrated it on a small UGV and stuck a mosquito killing laser on the top.
A LeiShen Intelligent representative said while they had yet to make a sale, the company was pitching the idea to hospitals, schools or other public buildings in areas blighted by diseases such as malaria or zika.
Through object recognition and tracking algorithm, the killer robot recognises a mosquito and ‘instantly’ lasers it.
The company claims the laser is capable of killing an impressive ’30 to 40 mosquitoes in one second’.
