The Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM), which is the government nodal agency for entrepreneurship and incubation activities, has launched two robots developed by startup firm Asimov Robotics to spread awareness about the spread of the virus.  At the KSUM's Integrated Startup complex, one robot distributes face masks, sanitizers and napkins for better cough hygiene. The other robot screens details about the World Health Organisation’s campaign to contain the pandemic.  It will also clean the doors. A robot is also answering questions about the coronavirus. Asimov is trying to use robots in public places, including airports. There is also an attempt to automate robots by mapping.
