Organizing a major global sporting event such as the Beijing Olympics in 2022 in a context of Coronavirus came as a challenge for China. The organizers took up the challenge and decided to deploy robots to do various jobs like serving drinks. There are temperature-controlled sleep pods and machines sanitize all areas. These games could be considered the most controlled international sporting event to date.
Last year there was the Tokyo Games, proving that it is possible to hold an Olympics in the age of a pandemic. However, China has raised the bar.
In addition to being rich, he is powerful and determined. Its robotics and artificial intelligence experts have created a system to guarantee a virus-free game.
The site would house approximately 60,000 athletes, team officials, media, volunteers and more. There will be a “closed loop” environment. This will involve three main closed “bubble zones” spread over a large expanse of land. Designated traffic lanes will ensure connectivity between the bubbles. There will be hotels, conference centers, dormitories for workers, etc. North Korea is banned from the 2022 Beijing Olympics because it did not participate in the Tokyo Games.
Participants in the Beijing Olympics must follow the Covid protocol
Games authorities said people must wear a mask at all times except in their own rooms and while eating.
They must respect social distancing. Everyone must undergo a PCR deep throat swab test daily and register it on the approved health app. Already people have arrived, and few of them are infected. They must self-isolate until they test negative.
Officials want to ensure zero spread. There are robots on the floor that move around the common areas and spray disinfectants.

The BBC adds that Beijing has introduced several unique tools to reduce human-to-human contact. A high level of automation is evident with robots in the kitchen and behind the bar. Lunar New Year falls before the Games this year. Obviously, the walls reflect the mood in the decoration and the cultural elements.
Beijing sets a new trend of living with robots
The Beijing Winter Olympics changed the concept of games where participants arrive from other countries. They want to engrave their name in the record books. However, the contagious coronavirus has emerged as a significant challenge for organizers. They had to work overtime to scale the solutions, and the result is their emphasis on a high degree of automation. China has set a new trend of living with robots. As a result, the Olympic Village gives the impression of walking through a science fiction film set.
The technology used by Beijing for the Games is the talk of the town
Beijing is exploiting the opportunities offered by the Games and the restrictions imposed for the safety of people.
China wants to show off its technological advances to the world. It seems that they have managed to catch the attention of the global community. Beijing has deployed robots in every possible area, from cooking to delivering food, making cocktails, mopping floors, and more.
One attraction is a UFO-style machine in the Olympic Village that performs aerial food delivery to athletes. These innovations minimize the risk of virus transmission. Beijing deserves all the credit for bringing robotics into the Olympics. China has developed its robotics and is competing with other countries to make its presence felt on the Moon and Mars.
