BEIJING, Feb. 16 (Xinhua) -- The following are the highlights of China's key technology news from the past week:


An intelligent system for novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) diagnosis developed by Chinese researchers has passed application tests and started clinical trials.

By analyzing clinical data with big data techniques, learning the clinical characteristics of COVID-19 with artificial intelligence algorithms and intelligently judging the patients' respiratory function, the intelligent diagnosis system can simultaneously conduct image diagnosis, clinical diagnosis and clinical typing.

The system can conduct chest CT screening for a large amount of suspected cases in a short time, significantly improving the efficiency of diagnosis.


An all-in-one machine for contact-free temperature screening and security checks has been put in use in the Shanghai subway network.

The machine, developed by China Electronic Technology Group Corporation (CETC), has a terahertz security detector as its core and combines it with infrared temperature measurement equipment.

Passengers only need to walk through to complete the security check and temperature screening, reducing the risk of cross-infection.

The system also increases the security check efficiency fivefold, effectively relieving the pressure on the crowded subway network.


Chinese companies have improved the sterilization method to speed up the production of medical protective clothing for the country's fight against the novel coronavirus outbreak.

A subsidiary company of the China National Nuclear Corporation has started to adopt the irradiation sterilization, a key step to increasing the production efficiency for protective clothing.


Chinese researchers have developed a portable detection system for suspected cases of COVID-19.

The system is similar to the size of a computer mouse. It is internally integrated with a precise detection core module and has a detection accuracy equivalent to that of large laboratory instruments. It can quickly test a person's finger blood and detect whether they are a suspected case.


Chinese researchers have developed a robotic sprayer that can help reduce the transmission of the novel coronavirus in heavily populated urban areas.

The robotic sprayer can be remotely operated. The range of its spray devices can reach 30 meters.

The robot can walk up to 7 km per hour, killing the virus in an area of more than 40,000 square meters. It is narrow enough to maneuver into residential communities, bus stations, construction sites and underground parking garages. Enditem
