THE Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) is ready to deploy the various advanced technologies in combating COVID-19 infections in the country.
The technology agency under the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) has developed numerous intelligent platforms that utilizes artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data management, simulations and others to mitigate COVID-19 based on FTTIS (find, test, trace, isolation, support).
Using data on infection hotspots, MARii’s predictive modeling, and simulation platforms allows it to predict infection patterns and identify high risk areas – to prescribe mass testing of coronavirus infections, particularly in finding asymptomatic carriers and preventing further spread of viruses.
MARii has also developed the ImmuSAFE COVID+ biochip test kit, a serology (blood) test that can identify prior infections and the presence of protective antibodies in individuals that have had a prior infection, regardless if they are symptomatic or asymptomatic.
Additionally, tracing and isolation of close contacts of infected individuals can also be done through the MARii Tracker application, which is designed for health management within industries operating during the pandemic.
Derived from big data, artificial intelligence and IoT platforms developed by MARii, the application identifies close contacts of infected persons, and also groups that can continue working without risk.
“MARii has built a strong track record in developing intelligent technologies for the automotive sector for more than a decade. As we evolved to serve beyond the automotive and mobility sector, many of our homegrown technologies have been adapted to applications in any sector, including health management”, said MARii CEO Datuk Madani Sahari. – May 1, 2021
