SEOUL, March 12 (Korea Bizwire) — While the novel coronavirus outbreak is spreading at a rapid pace in Korea, Korean startup firms are also seeing their own technologies shine.
Vodacom, a startup specializing in telecommunication platforms, decided to provide its “Video Help Me” (Videohelp.me) service free of charge until May for public institutions, small and medium-sized enterprises, and individual businesses that have difficulty conducting face-to-face business such as door-to-door inspections and on-site services due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Tilon, a cloud-specialized company, will also provide free solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises to implement smart work, such as remote work or an in-house self-sitting system, until the situation stabilizes.
Meanwhile, B-bros, which runs the hospital reservation reception service “Ddocdoc,” is helping mobile hospital reservation reception service and coronavirus preliminary inspection and real-time mask map support.
Citizens can register their medical procedures in real time without visiting the hospital in advance through an application.
The development of “non-face-to-face and non-contact” technologies, which eliminate concerns over indirect infections, is also continuing.
EVER Information Technology, a manufacturer of access control and video surveillance systems, developed a face recognition technology that not only analyzes facial blood flow but also identifies users within 0.1 seconds to control their access.
Unlike existing fingerprint recognition access control system, the user has no contact with the terminal, so there is no fear of indirect spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19, and it is possible to control entry and exit faster.
