It is required to be able to help deal with companies' applications for the resumption of operation, and collect and analyze the information of people who intend to return to work.

g) Management and control system in key areas

Any applicant for the task is expected to develop a system that is capable of disinfecting spaces, providing alarms, monitoring and publicizing information automatically based on technologies such as geographic information systems, robotics and unmanned aerial vehicles.

ⅲEveryday life

h) Unmanned delivery vehicles

Applicants that claim to be able to fulfill the task are required to develop driverless vehicles for the delivery of parcels, daily necessities and production supplies to help residents and companies avoid direct contact amid the epidemic. These vehicles might be conducive to the improvement of convenience in living and production.

i) Intelligent system for clocking in and out

This system, to be applied in public places with large population mobility such as shopping malls, supermarkets and financial institutions, is required to use the technologies of big data and artificial intelligence to monitor the entry and exit of people, and achieve the functions of automatic card-punching, data storage and decentralized management.

j) Digitalized office system

The office system is expected to provide digital services based on artificial intelligence and big data to increase the work efficiency of individuals and teams. The virtual reality technology is required to ensure that real scenes and data of land, factories and workplaces can be shown to clients even without field trips. An online system for contract signing should be also included for projects the negotiations on which are near completion.

k) Online education platform

Applicants should be qualified to establish an online education platform with the technologies of 5G, cloud computing and facial recognition. The platform, able for live streaming and managing teaching affairs, is expected to assist with the operation of remote teaching and working.

I) Service robots

These robots are expected to provide services concerning smart temperature checks, routine inspections, medical assistance, disinfection and material delivery. Key technologies concerning intelligent interaction, intelligent manipulation, three-dimensional imaging, man-machine collaborative interface and precise and safe manipulation are required.
