The robotics industry is stepping up to help combat the novel coronavirus. Not only are robots helping in a variety of ways, some companies have shifted their focus and launched new initiatives to help. Here are just a couple of examples. JR Automation partnered with General Motors to produce 50,000 medical masks a day. And two Boston-based robotics startups started The Ventilator Project, a non-profit looking to develop a low-cost ventilator specifically for COVID-19 patients. One ventilator costs about $40,000, according to estimates, but this initiative is rapidly prototyping a ventilator that will cost between $1,000-$2,000.
