Misty, the programmable person robot, is designed to be almost anything an engineer can dream up, from senior companion and wellbeing monitor to friendly pal who will tirelessly play catch with your dog.Now joining the fight against the pandemic, the engineers at Misty Robotics have defined a new role for her: A highly engaging temperature screening assistant. It is a new, turnkey offering designed for customers who want to screen temperatures at a point of entry to a facility, but who likely do not have the technical background of an engineer the robotics platform was originally created for.
“Misty was ‘purpose-built’ for developers who use the platform to create their own applications, using third party APIs, hardware modifications, etc. Typically, we  provide developer support, sample code, and documentation,” said Ian Bernstein, Founder and CTO of Misty Robotics. “But for this application, we started getting inquiries from all sorts of end user companies that do not have technical people. So, we knew we had to develop a solution that was turnkey and came with super easy and clear setup and operating instructions.”
